Is it possible to update original issue when clone is updated

Is there a way to code this:

Hi Olga,

Yes there are definitely possibilities to do that but you will need an app on Jira server.

For scriptring I can recommend ScriptRunner. This app allows you to create a custom listener where you choose the event to fire on. In your case: issue updated.

You can also take a look at apps without scripting like Automation for Jira or Automation for Jira Lite.

@Charlie Misonne Is there any way to do this without ScriptRunner?

Hi Olga,

Yes you can try Automation for Jira. I don't think the free lite version will be sufficient for your use case.
