Clone issue - delete related subtasks

I've setup a workflow function to auto create a subtask on every issue from the create transition, this is being used to track an SLA.

When somebody uses the clone function then automatically a subtask is created as well obviously, as per the create step, does anyone have an idea how I could stop the creation of the subtasks on the cloned issues created or even give the users access to delete the subtask on their newly cloned issue and only that?

The reason being when we clone an issue it's so we can move it out of that particular project and into another one which wouldn't have any subtasks setup which means the issue can't be moved.

Main idea - cloned issue has a repective link to original. So you can make a check before subtask creation if the issue have a clone link.
