Is there any other way to move issues to other project apart from Jira's "Move" operation?

Is there any other way to move issues to other project apart from Jira's "Move" operation?

any plugin that might provide this functionality?

I want to provide a feature to end users to move issues from project A to project B and there is a restriction on target project that it should be B only. Basically any issuetype in project A to any issuetype in project B. I cannot use the Jira default "Move" operation because we cannot restrict the list of target projects there.

As @Ravi Sagar _Sparxsys_ says, yes, you could do this with Scriptrunner, but it's a lot of code to design and write.  You'll have to think about all the data consistency checks Jira does when you're moving an issue, and how to make changes to the issue as you move it to update any data that's not right.

Most people don't want to invest the time in that, they would look at the reason you're moving it, and change the process so you don't need to do move it any more.

Hi Swapnil,

Can you describe in more detail why you can't move the issue to Project B using the normal Move function? You would probably run into the same restrictions if you are using a non-traditional method.

Hello @John Funk ,

I want the users to not have the freedom to move issues from project A to any other project apart from B. Hence, I want something like a customized Move functionality

You can control Move permissions by project using the Permission Scheme for that project. Just edit the Move Issues permission.

Hi @SWAPNIL SRIVASTAV 

Move feature has been there in Jira for cases when issue was created in wrong project. What you are trying to achieve can potentially be done using ScriptRunner for Jira but it might be too much work.

Hello @Ravi Sagar _Sparxsys_ ,

Alright. Thank you. So you would not suggest achieving this with script runner?
