It is possible to clone Custom Fields with Deep Clone for Jira. If some Custom Fields weren’t cloned, you can try the following solution.


  • The Custom field must be configured in both projects.

  • The name of the Custom field must match in both projects if you clone between company-managed (classic) and team-managed (next-gen) projects.

Known Limitations

  • Completed Sprints

  • Some Custom Fields are automatically set by Jira and cannot be edited by Deep Clone:

    • "Date of First Response"

    • "Username of last updater or commenter"

    • "Domain of Assignee"

    • "Domain of Reporter"

    • "Number of attachments"

    • "Number of comments"

    • "Last public comment date"

    • "Last commented by a User Flag"

    • "Participants of an issue"

    • "Days since last comment"

  • Some custom fields can not be cloned at all:

    • "Rank" - However, you can use the "Rank cloned issues" function after a Bulk Clone instead.

    • "Development" - Is set by the respective development tools integration of the Jira project.

  • Some Jira Service Management fields can only be cloned with restrictions:

    • JSM "Request Type” - Only supported with “Immediately clone issue” and if the issue type stays the same (JSM limitation).

    • JSM "SLAs" - Automatically set by JSM

    • JSM "Approvals" - Can only be set by JSM. Get in touch with us, if you need to clone this field.
