how to copy project configuration from one project to another in jira


Hello Team,

I would like to Copy Project Config from JIRA project with Key=ABC to JIRA Key=XYZ with the below features:

  1. Only Project Configurations like the WorkFlows, settings, Permission Matrix, Field configurations, Boards etc.
  2. Once Project XYZ configured, there is no link or dependency on project ABC.
  3. No Issues to be copied from existing Project ABC.

hi @Aravind Koushik Gobburu 

See You can just copy the Workflow, Permission, field configuration schemes of proj=abc and rename it to as per requirement.

You can copy a board in JIRA. From the "boards" drop-down you can click on "View all boards.

After copying the scheme you need to just associate to proj=xyz.




Hi Aravind,

Hope you are fine.

you can copy the existing configuration by using the shared template.While creating new project there is an option to check the shared project then it will show all the existing project in the drop down.

It will copy the all configuration without any data or any linking

This is the best practice we should follow in jira to use the shared template. Iam using in my organisation and it help us a lot.

Yes, there is an option to do that but as he said in the question that doesn't want any dependency. Because shared configuration  while creating a project, whenever you make changes in permission scheme, workflow etc inproject= XYZ it will also change in project=abc.

Yes in future if he want to change then that particular scheme can be copied and make changes in that.This will not impact the existing project and other configuration will remain same

Hi @shruti gupta

Hope you are fine. 

If I copy the existing configuration by using shared template to create a new project. Will I be able to merge those 2 projects in future if needed?



Hi @sagar bhatia

Iam good, Thanks. Hope the same for you.

Yes, you can merge by moving the issues of one project to the targeted project, but the version and component needs to check or match in targeted project before moving the issue.

Hope this helps here.
