cloning and updating epic link


Epic-1 -->task1–>Subtask1

in the above with the help of script runner, i am cloning the subtask1 and creating a new task task2 in one of the transitions.

For the task2 i want to set the epiclink as epic1.

Could anyone help me with the script in the subtask transition .

Hi Syed,

You could use the Clones an Issue and Links post function provided by Script Runner with the code shown below in the additional issue actions box and the configuration shown in the screenshot below.

// Required Imports
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue;
// Get a reference to the Epic Link Field 
CustomField epicLink = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName('Epic Link');

// Get the Epic Issue so that the cloned issue is added to the Epic
Issue epic = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager().getIssueObject("KDP-23")

// If the Epic issue is a valid issue then add the cloned issue to the epic.
issue.summary = 'Task 2' 
issue.setCustomFieldValue(epicLink, epic);

As long as the epic issue object specified represents an Epic issue type then the cloned issue will be added to the epic.

This was configured using JIRA 6.4.12 and Script Runner

I hope this helps.
