Hello @SHEHZADALI ISMAILY 

What is your issue hierarchy? How many layers are there below a Feature, and do you need to clone all the layers?

Are you willing to consider a third party app instead of using Jira Automation?

no third party apps, would like to accomplish using JIRA automation

Do you need to clone all the layers?

feature has child issues of story, task, bug and spike. all child issues under the feature need to be cloned along with the feature.

So does that mean there are only two layers?

Do you not use Sub-tasks below the Story/Task/Bug/Spike level?

SHEHZADALI ISMAILY February 23, 2024

yes, only two layers. no Sub-tasks below the Story/Task/Bug/Spike level

Take a look at this post.

It talks about cloning Epics and their children, and subtasks, but it should give you enough information to use it as a base with modifications to create your rule.

Here is another post on the same topic.
