How to clone issues to a new project?

Is there a method or plugin that will enable me to clone issues from 1 project to another Project?

I am looking to still keep the Original Issue in it's Project and then have a "Clone" issue inanother project. So 2 identical issues in 2 seperate projects.

Hi Nancy

You can clone the issue and use the option More>Move when editing the issue to transfer it to another project.

Hope it helps

This seems like the easiest way to do this without installing a plugin. Sure it's an extra step but it works.

What happens to the workflow, custom issue types and custom fields?
Does that data still exist even if the project hasnt been configured to have those specific fields?


any way to do this in bulk without the plugin?

There is bulk move,

You need to make sure the destination project is as close to the original project as prossible (workflows, etc..)

Then you can bulk move as outlined here:'Bulk')+Issues#ModifyingMultiple%28%27Bulk%27%29Issues-bulkmoveBulkMove

Hope this helps.

I'm looking to keep the issues in the original project. Not looking to "Move" issues but to "Clone" issues in another project. So essentially, 2 projects with identical issues. I want this ability only at certain times to minimize double data entry.

In other words, if you're on Cloud, as usual, you're out of luck...
