Question about copying projects


I know Jira can quickly copy projects -- but I want something a little different. I want to copy a project -- but also copy the workflows and all schemes -- and not use the originals. I am basically looking for a means to make several projects that will be mostly alike, but will have tweaks made to each of their workflows, etc -- being able to have new workflows and schemes would really help with that.

Any ideas? I am on Jira 4.1.1 -- does Jira 5.0 have this sort of functionality?

Hi Bryan,

JIRA does not have this functionality (as of JIRA 5.2). You can take a look at the Workflow Sharing Plugin - this will copy a workflow and the screens, fields and plugins it depends on. You can do this between instances, or within the same instance. This plugin works on JIRA 4.4+.

Hi Bryan,

I don't think that Jira has this functionality. But I would think about, whether you really want to have an own workflow and every scheme uniquely for each project. Sounds like an admin hell ;-)

Best regards
