Duplicate an item

You might want to copy an item to use it as a template for a new project or a new requirement.


You must have read/write permissions to complete this task.

You can duplicate items in Jama Connect using these methods.

  • Duplicate items — Create a copy of the item's name, description, test steps (if applicable), and the ability to choose to include tags, attachments, and links. You can duplicate items that are locked.

  • Reuse items — Creates a copy of an item, but with more options. With this method you can reuse multiple items, reuse items with children, duplicate more of the item's content, or duplicate an item from another project. For more information, see Reuse items.

To duplicate an item:

  1. Select the item you want to copy, then select Duplicate item from the menu.

  2. In the Duplicate item window, indicate whether you want to duplicate tags, attachments, or links.

  3. Press Enter or select Duplicate.


    According to the item type, selected preferences are saved across sessions. However, clearing your browser data restores default options. When specific attributes (as in links) aren't enabled for an item type, the option doesn't appear in the pop-up window.

The item you duplicated opens in Single Item View.
