Check if Issue is a clone during create postfunction (customscript)

Hi,

can I check within a custom script postfunction (directly after create) if an issue is a clone or not?

This would need to do something similar to what was asked earlier about detecting clones in a listener - https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Atlassian-Marketplace-questions/How-to-detect-via-script-listener-if-an-Issue-was-cloned/qaq-p/460724

Most of the answer is the same, except that you won't have an issue history to read, and will need to rely on the summary and/or link being set.

My problem is that i dont want to rely only on the summary, but the link collection of the cloned issue is empty during the create-postfunction (even when i move my custom script at the very end, ofcourse after "issue is created" step).

Collection<Issue> allIssueLinks = ComponentAccessor.getIssueLinkManager().getLinkCollection(issue, currentUser).getAllIssues()

=> allIssueLinks.size() is always 0. It works fine in other transitions but not during Create.

After cloning, i can see inside the issue history that first my script is performed and then the link is set afterwards ("user changed the Link to 'This issue clones ...").

Hello Dennis,

 

Did you find any workaround for this?

Moiz
