Cloned issue linking to orginal


When I clone an issue, the newly created cloned issue gets automatically linked to the original issue.

Is it possible to disable this?

I tried deactivating the issue linking in permissions but this did not work, 


Thank you

while you can certainly remove a link you cannot prevent the link from being added at time of cloning. You might be able to use some scripting/automation addon to remove it but some care would be needed to not remove links where desired.

Hi @David O_Neill ,

Welcome to Community

You will be able to turn off issue link feature globally and it effects other issue links like relates, blocks etc.

Secondly you can use automation for Jira app to trigger the automation rule, which will delete the issue link. Please find below sample automation rule for your reference.




Just remove the link type "Cloners" from the issue linking configuration and no links will be set when cloning while keeping issue link functionality intact.
