Is there a way to COPY (not move) Jira issues from a project to another project?

I have a NextGen (Team Managed) project that has 50 issues. (e.g., ABC-1 through ABC-50)  I want to copy all of them to a new project  (XYZ-1 through XYZ-50).  what is the best way to do this? I do not want to move them. I want to copy them.  All associated links will also port over.

If there is a way to copy a project to a new project. It would work as well.

Are any of these capabilities possible?

Hi @Phil 

There should be the ellipsis on the top-right corner of the ticket you want to move. Then select the project you want to move the cloned ticket to. You can read more details here:

Hope it helps.

Hi @Phil,

With our app Deep Clone for Jira you can bulk clone thousands of issues at once and move them to other Jira projects while cloning.

If you have questions or feedback, don't hesitate to get in touch with our support.

Ok. Deep Clone for JIRA. HIGH MARKS all around. not only does it do what I want it do, it anticipated many of the ways we want it to copy and accounted for it. It meets 99% of what we were looking for. And the other 1%? It is probably something we haven't learned it could do yet.  Very well thought out.

Well done.

Thanks a lot for the motivating words, @Phil . I forwarded your comment to our team and they were delighted. 

Feel free to get in touch with us about the other 1%. We're happy to help.
