Copy values when bug is marked as duplicate

When Bug A gets resolved as a duplicate of Bug B, I want to copy certain field values from Bug A to Bug B. I'm trying to figure out the best way to do this. The only thing I came up with is to create a post-function script on any transition that could set the resolution and:

1) check to see if the resolution was duplicate

2) look at Bug A's linked issues and find the duplicate issue ID

3) grab the field values we want from Bug A

4) copy them over to Bug B

Is that the best way to do this?

The steps looks fine. Do share your implementation, that will also help others. In case an event is not triggered by workflow transition you can also use Listener that doesn't rely on a post function.


Yup, that's how I'd do it. Sharing an implementation would certainly be cool of you. smile
