Hi - I'm evaluating Bulk Clone Professional, and need to clone our "template" Epic. This Epic contains a handful of Tasks ("Issues in Epic"). Each of these Tasks in the Epic have a bunch of Sub-Tasks. How do I clone this entire structure? When I clone this "template" Epic using Bulk Clone Professional, I only specify this single Epic as needing to be cloned, because I want to end up with a cloned Epic that contains the same (cloned) Tasks as the source Epic contains, and have each of these (cloned) Tasks point to (cloned) Sub-Tasks.
So in the pic attached, the 5 "Issues in Epic" would also be cloned, and listed in the cloned Epic's "Issues in Epic" section. Also, I need each of the Sub-Tasks (of each Task) to also be cloned. So a full Epic clone.
Ok, I figured it out. Instead of assuming that just cloning the "top level" Epic, I need to use JQL (project = MIG and "Epic Link" = MIG-84 or issuekey = MIG-84) - where MIG-84 is the Epic - and clone the Epic and all of the "Issues in Epic" together. Very cool plug-in.
Hi Kristina - this is Fred, posting by mistake from my manager's account (oops ;_0 ) ... so I go to my project, and click on "view all issues and filters" in the upper right. Make sure the "Advanced" link is clicked, and create a filter that selects the epic you want to clone - along with all of the tasks in that epic. So for me, it's:
project = MIG AND "Epic Link" = MIG-84 OR issuekey = MIG-84 ORDER BY issuetype ASC, issuekey ASC
Then I save that filter. When you're ready to clone that epic (with its tasks and task sub-tasks), run that filter (by going to your project, clicking on "view all issues and filters", and clicking on the filter you just saved).
You'll now see the epics and tasks in that epic. You won't see sub-tasks but they're cloned automatically with each task. Now just follow the add-on instructions (go to tools -> bulk tools, change all X issues, and in bulk operations select all of them, click next, then select the add-on "clone issues", and you're off and running).
I was able to create JQL and see the list I wanted. I don't see tools > bulk tools etc. I'm trying to follow http://www.lbconsultinggroup.org/bulkclone-professional-documentation/ which recommends going to Backlog...I don't want that.
Couldn't see how to save the filter except to save it to a local file.
But is the EPIC-Link also changed?
JQL: key = TEST-1756 OR "EPIC Link"= TEST-1756 ORDER BY issuetype ASC
The issues in the list are from different projects.
Then I do the Clone and select all the issues.
I select the following issues in the 3rd step:
Everything looks fine - except the Epic Link. This is still to the old Epic.
