Using REST API/ Python to automate cloning reoccurring tasks and subtasks.

Hi Everyone, 

I am managing reoccurring tasks in Jira using custom filters ranging from about 28 to 30 tasks with sub-tasks quarterly. This process is very tedious and time consuming due to the fact that I cannot clone in bulk task/subtasks without there being an integrity issue. I have done some research that this may be possible using the rest API or by creating a Python script. Any advise?

You should definitely look into the Jira python library if you really want to write a logic for your use case. As that would give you a head start in your scripting option.

I'll definitely look into this. Thank you
