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)
issue.store()
issueIndexingService.reIndex(issue)
}

 Let me know if that helps.

Antoine
