Create another option. Persist customfield value.


I'd like to persist the value of a customfield when I use the option "Create another" when I create an issue.

The customfield extends to the GenericTextCFType. This customfield show a select list with a key-value option.

This key-value is taken from a table, key and value can be different.

When the issue is created and show the screen to create the new Issue I saw that the value of issue is null and there is impossible to take the previous value.

Best regards.

Natively, you cannot do this in JIRA. I can suggest a couple of ways:

  • Clone the issue instead of creating another one
  • Add default values on the custom fields OR via post-function create event
  • Javascript on the create screen (which I don't ever ever recommend but it's an option)
