Rename your Epic

Quickly navigate to new epic

Beside the standard function you can duplicate Epic to copy not only the epic itself but also all issues within the epic.

Similar to the standard function the summary for the new issue can be inserted on the appearing screen. All issues which are linked to the epic are listed on the screen.

As you know it from the standard functionality you can quickly navigate to the new issue by clicking on the link in the message which appears.

Add a feature to your Jira Server instance which is very useful but not included in the standard Jira. Save a lot of time and work to recreate epics with issues individually with our duplicate epic solution.

Hello, Excellent work, great and useful add-on. The following issues are identified while using the add-on: - When cloning the epic, it clones all related information like due date and time logged per issue. We want the due to be empty or prompt you to give a new one and not clone the logged time, since the time spent on an issue is for the original issue and not the cloned one We have a proposal for improvement: - Provide a choice of which tasks/sub-tasks should be cloned

Hi, We use You addon and it looks great, however we found one issue. We use the workloads as a secondary addon and while cloning the epics with stories/subtasks we got an issue that cloned taks have cloned values from the orgin items: 1.) estimated time 2.) remaining time 3.) reported time We love to have the clone of estimations and remaing time as we can edit it inside jira item. Still the problem is that when we go inside reported time there is a message "there are no worklogs related with the issuse". Looks like a problem between plugins. Maybe You should not clone the data like workloads or just not clone the reported work value? BR, Mike.

First of all, sorry for the late response. Thank you very much for your feedback.

Your problem with our app seems to be very specific and connected to the use of the other app you mentioned. We plan to be more flexible in upcoming releases so you can specify exactly what you want to clone and what not. I think that would help with your problem.

It will nice to have following features: - During Epic cloning process, also renames "Epic Name" same as the new title of the Epic. - Provide the list of fields to choose to be updated during cloning process on the UI. Example FixVersion could be different. Now user has to bulk update all the issues. - Provide Search and Replace Keyword functionality during Cloning process. Example all the issues has a common [Keyword] in the title as a standard template for a Project or Team or Department. Using this Feature all the issues will automatically update with new Keywords and user doesn't need to update them individually.

Thank you for your feedback and the suggestions for improvement.

We will evaluate them and check what can be implemented in the upcoming releases.

Just installed the add-on. It does the job of cloning an epic, but the UX needs some love. For example: When you click "Clone" on an Epic with some linked tasks and it takes up to a minute to finish, then you don't end up on the newly cloned issue but leaves you with an error saying the cloning did not succeed when it did. A simple "cloning..." message would be nice and some better error management as well as a redirect to the new epic.

We just released a new version of the app with a few UI improvements. We hope it will lead to a better review rating ;-)
