When trying to clone an epic, subtasks are not created

When you try to clone an epic, a new epic is created with a link to the main task. However, no subtasks are created.123.png123.png

@Илья Issues in Epic and Sub-tasks are different.

Epics are like large chunk of work that will be delivered over several sprints.

Issues in Epics are usually Stories/Tasks which are like features that can be delivered in a sprint.

And Sub-tasks are part of those Stories/Tasks which are needed to complete in order to complete that feature.

So while cloning epics, issues in Epic won't be cloned as we are not getting that option. Instead you need to clone all issues and linked them to cloned Epic.

Hope this helps.
