    In JIRA

    This plugin will allow you to create a new project with settings copied from an existing project.

    The plugin will copy schemes, components, versions, etc.

    You will then be able to manage the new project as a separate entity.

    It saves you the job of having to manually enter the Components all over again -- very useful when a department decides they need 40 copies of the same project. Unfortunately it's rather buggy (using 6.4.11). . The project category isn't cloned. . The Project Lead is listed as "anonymous" after cloning, one needs to fix that in Project Roles. - Components are cloned only like 5 out of ten times (I deleted projects, then created them with the same name). Mostly it copied all 40 components of the source project, but sometimes it only copied 17 out of 40, or five. So for the admin end user who needs to "do the same project again but in 30 flavors", it's not so much a "clone project" plugin as a "copy most settings into a new project, then spend several.minutes checking for missing stuff and fixing omissions" plugin. But hey, it does a good job like 75% of the time so it's still less hassle than adding 1200 components to JIRA manually. And it's free, unlike so many other plugins that offer functionality that Atlassian say they won't fix because there's plugins.

    Wow.. It works like a charm in jira 6.4.. Its a shame jira doesn't have it by default. As Todd said The functionality is under the 'Actions' drop-down in Project Administration page.

    We have been using this plugin for JIRA 6.4 and liked it a lot. Now JIRA 7.1.6 is out and we are wondering if there is any plan to port it to the new version ? I am sure I am not the only one who wants it.

    Hi, Just to confirm, the cloned project is an exact copy of the original project isn't it with all the same issues already created in the original project? I am trying to understand the best way to create a project schedule template in Jira fot IT projects. I figure if I add all the project tasks (JIRA issues) to a dummy Jira project, then make a clone of it and save it when a really project to manage comes my way, that will work. Will it work and is there a better way? Thanks, appreciate all advice.
