Is there a way to move issues between projects.

Added by Dmitry Vyal over 11 years ago

Several times we ran into a following problem.

At first, you create an issue and work on it, then another and another. Soon you realize they really should be a part of a separate project. I know there's a Duplicate issue button, but this way I lose history.

Is there a way to migrate existing issues together with all the history to another project?

Hm, I'm a little bit confused, as in 0.9.2, when viewing an issue I had "duplicate", "copy" and "move" available as links on the bottom of the issue page. In the Testinstallation of 1.0.1, only "duplicate" seems to be left.

Hmm, now I remember that too, in 0.7. Any ideas, where has it gone?

OK, see #6195 and #6513. I think the function you're requesting is built in, but broken in current versions ;-).

Many thanks, Glenn. in #6195 they say it's fixed in 1.0.2. I should upgrade then.

Hi, we currently have 1.0.2 already but I can't seem to Move issues. My account is administrator and I have "Move issues" permission set but there is no Move link at the top of the issue page.

Is there a new way to move issues?

Hi Roger,
since I upgraded to 1.0.2 (git 0a224e8bb1a5939fb2745bfc936f9432960a9672), moving works just fine. Previously there just was no such button. What doesn't work in your case?

Hello Dmitry,

On my setup, there is no Move button. I'm expecting the Move button to be at the same area as Update, Duplicate, Delete, Unwatch when viewing an issue but there's no button. Is my expectation correct?

Yes, it appeared there for me.
I suggest you to try to manually access the functionality:
Say, you're on a page:
http://redmine.xxx/issues/361
Try to enter http://redmine.xxx/issues/move/new?id=361 in the address bar. It's the location the move button points to.

That link worked! Thanks! It's a good workaround for now :)

I'm also having the same issue. The workaround is great - but is a permanent fix being worked on? I'm using Redmine 1.0.2.stable (MySQL). Thank you.

A co-worker of mine found out that there is a context menu on the issue list by right-clicking on an area that is not a link. The pointer will actually change to an arrow with a box next to it. The user's guide describes this functionality on the issue list page.

Great tip! Thanks for the info. Still...seems like it would be nice to have the move button back someday...

There was a bug in previous releases, but IIRC it has been corrected in 1.0.2 (or at least in trunk).
