Hi @DevaKiran ,

I would suggest to add a script listener on the Issue Moved event. Select the appropriate projects and use this script : 


import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.index.IssueIndexingService

def changeItem = event?.getChangeLog()?.getRelated("ChildChangeItem")
def sourceProject = event?.getChangeLog()?.getRelated("ChildChangeItem")?.find {it.field == "project"}?.oldstring
def targetProject = event?.getChangeLog()?.getRelated("ChildChangeItem")?.find {it.field == "project"}?.newstring

if (sourceProject && sourceProject != targetProject){
issue.setCreated(new Date().toTimestamp())
def issueIndexingService = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(IssueIndexingService)

 Let me know if that helps.


Hi Antoine,

The above script worked in our project. Thanks a ton for your prompt response. Your reply saved lot of time for me and Dev.


Many thanks again,

Kind Regards,
