.csv import is a great option.

If you want to go further and make some modification you can use our Excel 365 Connector, which is providing 2 way communication Jira <-> Excel.

With our app you can easily create new issues in Excel or edit existing issues (fetched from JQL or filter). In your case in Excel you would just need to modify project key in those selected issues.

Here is a documentation page about creating new issues:

There are scripting options but it sounds like you would be able to do this with a CSV import built in excel


Importing issues into multiple Jira projects

You can import issues from your CSV file into different Jira projects through a CSV file import. To do this:

  • The CSV file must have two additional columns whose headings should be named similarly to Project Name and Project Key.
  • Ensure that every issue represented in your CSV file contains the appropriate name and key in those columns for the Jira projects to which they will be imported.

    The project name and key data is the minimum Jira project data required for importing issues from a CSV file into specific Jira projects.

IssueType, Summary, Project Name, Project Key
bug, "First issue", Sample, SAMP
bug, "Second issue", Sample, SAMP
task, "Third issue", Example, EXAM
