Is it possible to have "parent projects" or "clients", and then all projects related to this "parent" as subprojects?

We use JIRA to support different clients, and each client typically has a number of projects being run concurrently. Currently, each project is entered as a new project, with nothing (apart from the name) apparent to link it to other projects, or a master client. Is it possible to create a parent project or client, and then for each relevant client project to be listed underneath the parent?

I think what you are looking for is in this New Feature request, linking between project the same as linking between issues https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-5136

Hi Mariond,

At the moment we don't have parent project to child project structure in JIRA. However since you are interested to group a project for clients, then perhaps you may consider to use Project Categories instead. More details on this can be found in the following documentation:
- https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Defining+a+Project
(info) Click the link next to the Category field (located under the project name) to assign the project into a logical category/group. This is useful for managing multiple related projects. If no categories exist, click the Add link on the following No Project Category page to add a new category.

Though it's not much, I hope that the info above helps.

Cheers.
