Hello community!

Hi @Arnold Wender 

Welcome to the community.

If you go to settings > system>general configuration >advanced setting > you can change the "jira.clone.prefix" from "Clone" to something else.

In your screen it look like you are updating the label field.

You can't rename the summary using he bulk update. You can try using some script (API or addon)

Hope this helps.

Hi Mohamed,

Oh I see, so, once I have cloned several Tasks (700) I can't bulk edit his prefix without a script? Is there any script you can recommend?

Thanks!

I will go with python, there is a jira module

https://jira.readthedocs.io/en/master/

I'm not a coding expert but i just test this and it's works :

from jira import JIRA
jira_cloud = JIRA(basic_auth=(login,"API token"), options={'server''your URL'})
issues_Jql = 'project = "your project"' #this is your JQL
my_issue = jira_cloud.search_issues(issues_Jql)
for i in my_issue:    
i.update(summary = i.fields.summary[
5:])

here the link to create your token for cloud :
