Duplicate an item

You can duplicate the following entities to save time when creating a new item: user story, quality story, requirement, defect, manual test, and Gherkin test. For example, duplicating is useful if you have a defect that needs to be fixed in multiple releases or versions.

Duplicate items

To duplicate an item, do one of the following:

  • Right-click an entity and select Duplicate. The new entity is displayed at the top of the grid.

  • Click Duplicate in an entity's Details tab. You will automatically navigate to the details of the new entity.

The new entity is named Copy of <original entity name>. Its phase is New, and its creator is the user who duplicated the original entity.

The following table describes which elements are copied to the new entity and which are not:

What is copied

The following elements are copied to the duplicate item:

  • Common fields - this varies depending on the entity type. Note that user-defined-fields (UDFs) are always copied.
  • Attachments

  • Tasks

What is not copied

The following elements are not copied to the duplicate item:

  • Comments

  • History

  • Test runs and old versions

Tip: You can also duplicate a defect by copying it to a different workspace. For details, see Report and track product defects.

Duplicating requirements

When you duplicate a requirement, the new requirement becomes a sibling of the original, and does not contain its descendant requirements.

Only requirement document entities can be duplicated, you cannot duplicate a requirement folder.
