Hey there, Have you come across any of the below scenarios -
The amount of effort required to set up a complex set of tasks and relationships, and the similarities between one project and its clone would be exactly the same if there was a clone model feature or a customized feature in Azure DevOps.
Canarys Clone Project minimizes the large amount of time and mouse clicks needed to manually create & configure new projects with a lot of different settings within the project like different Teams, different columns, card colours, rules, fields, custom queries, custom dashboards, GIT repos, pipeline definitions. Setting all of this up manually every time can takes hours, days or longer manually but with our extension it would take the least minimal time.
The tool clones the structure/configuration of an existing project to a new project within the same organization. It clones Azure Boards, Azure GIT Repos, Azure Pipelines and Azure Test Plans.
Features and exclusions of the tool are as below -
You need to have Project Collection Administrator access for creation of target project within the organization.
The extension is based on the APIs exposed by Microsoft and hence, comes with limitations for few functionalities.
The marketplace version of the tool allows to clone 1000 work items, 50 build & release pipelines each. If your requirement exceeds this number, please contact us - email@example.com .
