Is there a way to move an existing project to a component of another project?

I had created a project and added many issues to it and tied them into git with issue tags.  Now I am being asked to roll this project up into a component as project on a higher level project.  Is this possible or do I have to reenter all the issues on the new component?

You could do it the following way

1. Create a number custom field. Let s say Attr1.

2. Filter all issues in the project which you need to move (project = yourProject).

3. Use bulk edit to set Attr1 to 1.

4. Move all issues from the required project using Bulk Edit (move operation).

5. Filter all issues with Attr1 = 1.

6. Use bulk edit to set components field of the selected issues to the required component.

7. Delete Attr1 custom field.

That worked.  Thank you!
