That doesn’t make sense from an Agile perspective. It’s also not possible in Jira, please see: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JSWSERVER-7721

However, if you read through the comments you will find some apps that provide this functionality, and some free workarounds that users have come up with.

It seems to me that:

1) Programmatic fashion https://developer.atlassian.com/jiradev/jira-platform/guides/projects/tutorial-creating-a-project-template

2) Create project with shared configuration + write some script (Python or Groovy wich will fill up this project with needed entites.

For non-programmers second solution is the best, imho.

@Amit Samji, Take a look at the Bulk Clone addon.  I think it will do what you want.
