Disable Clone for an issue type (Initiatives)


Is there a way to disable cloning for Initiatives only? - some critical fields like cost / risk/ cutom backend identifiers / system generated fields are being copied over too; Many times users fail to update those. This causes data integrity issues. Either disabling the clone function for the issue type or ability to ignore certain fields when cloning by default will help. Please advise.

Hi @Nayana Geddam ,

You need to have separate workflow for Initiatives and  for each status you need add below property in properties of status. 

Property Key:jira.permission.create.clone.denied


Please find below screenshots for your reference.
