The cloning feature replicates all tasks and relations between them, while following the same synchronization and scope definitions.
Even though Cloning can be a very powerful functionality, it will not replace Program Creation functionality. As it copies Programs only on their highest layer, it is very useful for the purpose of creating Project Portfolio Templates, which we can later re-use for certain types of Programs.
Clone an existing Program
Pick a Program to be cloned.
Enter the following information:
Program leader - has access to the Program configuration by default.
Program duration - determines the Agile schedule and has no impact on the tasks.
Privacy settings - when set to private other users, except for the app's admin, will not see the Program in the Program Manager view.
Select an existing project where the cloned issues will be created.
Click the "Let's get it started!' button.
Which data can be cloned?
The most common cases and limitation are described in the table below:
Other fields beside Summary and synchronized date fields
The required fields can not be populated by the app, hence before cloning the Program make sure all possible fields are set as optional
Version or Component
The app is capable of creating Jira Issues and recreating the structure. It is not capable of creating anything that is not a Jira Issue while cloning, therefore it will automatically replace the original Version or Component with an Artificial Task.
