My projects generally start of the same way with the same fundamental tasks in the beginning. Therefore I would now like to take a copy of a project "C/O Hotels BPC Implementation" and create a copy to a new project which I would then use in the future. All the tasks should be copied over one-to-one. It's a template.

Is this something you can help me with?

You can try the script runner plugin, it has a built-in script for this: https://studio.plugins.atlassian.com/wiki/display/GRV/Built-In+Scripts#Built-InScripts-CopyProject.

Ok, thank you very much, Jamie. Could you tell me how to implement script runner?

Anyway to do this for OnDemand?

@James, there only workarounds, hoops to jump through, or more products to buy if you want to simply copy a project in OnDemand.

It's really disapointing that this base feature is missing, when it's available in many SaaS PM solutions today.

@jamiedo you plan to port this to be used in Atlasian's add-ons infrastruture for On Demand?

We'd pay for such an add-on for On Demand!

Not really... the remote APIs aren't sufficient to copy the project to the level of detail that you get in the standard version of this plugin. I keep my eyes on developments in that space though.

Thanks for the reply.

I sure hope that there is some way to easily clone / copy projects in On Demand soon.

JIRA Command Line Interface cloneProject action. For onDemand, you will need to avoid using --cloneIssues parameter as issues cannot be cloned to another project without using the JIRA Clone-Plus plugin (not available with OnDemand). Instead just use the createIssue action.

Actually, I would recommend ditching the template project all together and going directly to a CLI script that creates the project and populates issues. Just create a file with all the actions you need and use the run action to run the "template" script with a couple of substitution variables (findReplace parameter) for the project key and name.

A feature request has been created for this, please vote for it: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/AOD-6722

+1 for copy/clone projects/issues - surprised it's not available already

Friday Fun: What's your favourite beer/drink

As a Belgian, beer-lover and home brewer, beer is one of my great passions. I love the fact that with just a few ingredients (usually just water, hop and malt) you can create so many different tastes...
