how do I clone a project?

What is the best way to create project templates on JIRA Sofware? Something we can use to create all projects (clone/copy)?

An alternative to plugins is the feature in JIRA. When you create a project, the project type selector dialog has a link at the bottom: "Create with shared configuration". 

If you choose that, you can select a source project to base your new project on. You can this way set up template projects, or simply select on of your real projects.

Hi All,

I have cloned a project in jira from another project. But when i change any field in my new project it gets changed in my old as well. How to I solve this? Thanks in advance. 

When you clone a project, the schemes get cloned as well. Unless you create a new scheme, any time you update a scheme it will affect both projects. 

These schemes are:

  • permission scheme
  • notification scheme
  • issue security scheme
  • workflow scheme
  • issue type scheme
  • issue type screen scheme
  • field configuration scheme

Starting in the Projects screen, select Create project.

Click Advanced.  Select Share settings with an existing project and specify the Key of the project you want to clone.

Older version had an option to copy all tasks and connections too, Is this really gone now!?

Curious about this as well
