Update cloned issues simultaneously


I want to be able to update feilds of cloned (or linked) issues that were moved (transfered) into other projects. I have several custom feilds that will always stay the same and I'm wondering if I could set it in so when an issue is updated in 1 project, it's also updated in the other project.

In a nut shell:

A clone (or duplicate) an issue, then move it in another project (sometime when all pertinent feild were not yet all filled). This would same me a great deal of retyping concomitant information.

Hello Nicolas,

Welcome to Atlassian Community!

I understand that you would like to update the cloned issues fields every time the source issue is upgraded. Is that correct?

Unfortunately, JIRA does not have this kind of functionality, however, there are some plugins that can help you achieve this.

My suggestion would be to use Automation for JIRA plugin and configure the following rule:

P.S: I used the Affect Version/s field as an example, put the same rule can be applied to any issue field.

Let me know if this option helps or if you have any other questions about it. :)

This is exactly I needed. Thanks :D
