Syncing comments in cloned issues

Hi All

Is there a way to keep comments in sync between two cloned issues?

You will need to write a listener to keep the comments in sync.

You can solve it by using "Script Listeners" section of Script runner. Clone Issue and issue that was cloned should be linkedIssues. You can easily create a Custom listener triggered by the event "Issue Commented" and add a script similar to this one.

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.event.issue.AbstractIssueEventListener
import com.atlassian.jira.event.issue.IssueEvent;
 
public class CopyComments extends AbstractIssueEventListener {
 
    @Override
    void workflowEvent(IssueEvent event) {
 
        def linkedIssue = "TEST-1";
        def commentManager = ComponentAccessor.getCommentManager();
        def issueManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager();
 
        def comment = event.getComment()
        def targetIssue = issueManager.getIssueObject(linkedIssue);
 
        commentManager.create(targetIssue, comment.authorApplicationUser, comment.body, true);
 
    }
 
}
