Project clone with all tasks

Hi, is there a way to clone a "template" project with all the task it contain?

I'm Sergey from the YouTrack team.

Thank you for contacting us. I'm happy to help you.

I'm afraid, there's no such possibility to generate issues via a project template currently. Here's the related feature request in our public tracker that needs to be implemented first: If interested, please feel free to vote for this issue. This helps us gauge how much impact this feature will have on our customer base, and you’ll also get subscribed to the issue’s notifications. To do so, sign in to JetBrains YouTrack and hit the thumbs-up icon.

Additionally, if you just need a predefined set of issues that you want to copy to new projects, then as for a workaround, you can clone existing issues and copy them to your new project. For that, you may try the following approach:

  • create a project that would store these issues you need to copy regularly

  • add required issues to the project

  • make sure you have YouTrack Lite disabled

  • select all the project's issues

  • open the command line and just enter clone

  • without unselecting the issues, open the command line again and enter move to <new project name>

  • test it on a test project with a couple of issues to see if it works as expected for you

Note that the clone command doesn't clone issue links and comments.

Is it Possible to automate this commandset by creating the projekt ?

We would like to use youtrack in whole company for different departments but without this feature it is difficult.




You can create a workflow similar to this one to create all needed issues in the new project automatically.
