Clones an issue and links - Creating an Epic

Hi,

I'm trying to create an Epic with the "Clones an issue and links" post function. It's not working; I think because Epic Name is a required field. Is it possible to use the Summary of the source issue for the Epic Name of the target issue?

Thanks

You should be able to specify the epic name by using this code in the "Additional code" section:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
def epicNameCf = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Epic Name")

issue.setCustomFieldValue(epicNameCf, sourceIssue.summary)
