Split an issue from backlog view in a team-managed project


I don't have the option to split an issue from backlog view, in a team managed project

Is there a way to do it?

Hello @Lucas Boczkowski,

Thank you for reaching out to Atlassian Community!

On team-managed projects, it’s currently only possible to clone an issue, but not split it. 

There is a feature request suggesting improvements for that:

Please, click on vote and also watch the ticket above to receive updates from our product managers.

Kind regards,

Ok, thanks Angélica!

Hi @Lucas Boczkowski 

I don't think that there was a choice of splitting an issue. What you can do is to create another issue, and then link it to the previous one with the "Split from"/"Split to" choice.

Hi Alex. Yes, that feature is available when you right click in an issue on the backlog view (but it seems it is only available in a company-managed project).
