For a mere moment there was a command, "Split," that allowed me to not clone, but split an issue. Now, however, it seems to be gone. I feel like I'm losing my mind, but I did actually find proof:
Does anyone know what the "split" command is (I swear it was "split") and what might have happened to it? Thanks!
I have the impression that - although not immediately visible on your screenshot - you have multiple issues selected. I think so because the bulk change option is showing.
I tried to reproduce this behaviour on a cloud instance and am seeing exactly this. As soon as I select only 1 issue, the split issue option appears in the menu.
Apart from that, a question to you too - how did you manage to get your issue key at the left of your issue cards?
I didn't do anything to put the issue key on the left side. It was always there.
I'm selecting only one issue. If I select more than one, the "Delete" option disapears from the pop up menu, but the other options remain the same.
I'm using Jira Server 7.3.4 not Jira Cloud. I don't know if this makes any difference.
You're not going crazy
This is brand new functionality to actually split an issue in 2.

It is intended to split up a larger story into smaller chunks, which you could add to different sprints. The nice thing about it, is that it copies all relevant information from your original story and then also handles all the logic of setting the correct status etc.
You find this functionality in backlog view by right clicking an issue. On cloud only for the moment or coming soon.
