As soon as you click Create from template, a dialog box appears. You will preselect:

  • Project
    Note
    It’s not possible to select the Templates repository. Due to app design and the purpose of Templates repository, this action has been blocked.
  • Issue type for new issue created from template
  • Template’s name

Click Confirm and go to the next step.

After you click Create, applying template will continue and other issues (including sub-tasks, links) will be generated based on your template data.

You can monitor the progress of applying template in Report dialog. Close the report to let the process run in the background.
