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)?

 

5 answers

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.

It creates a project with the setting configuration but not the tasks

Should be standard functionality.

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

Hi all ... Anyone found any route to do this? I will look at the Deep Clone add on but would like to try control this internal and possibly do this without an add on - either via the Interface or API? Anyone? Thanks in advance for new updates.

It might be interesting that we released an update for Deep Clone for Jira that enables you to clone entire Jira classic projects (plus components, versions, settings, issues, ...).

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

It doesn't copy the tasks and connections just the settings
