I'm trying to duplicate the context on 37 fields when I am cloning an issue.

I have a promotion running over 3 periods and need to clone the entire issue including the context fields in the issue's form. Reason is the fields are numerous and it takes time to re-enter the form, is there a quicker way to clone the entire issue, context included and just change the dates on the issue to represent the different periods they appear in?

Hi @Julie Reviglio ,

Welcome to the Atlassian Community! You can easily do this with Jira Automation (Project settings > Automation) where you can set the fields you're looking to copy over and choose to either Set value upon creation or copy the value from the original issue.

The rule might look something like this: 

Here, I've used a Scheduled trigger and scheduled the rule to run every 1 week. You can of course change this to align with the 3 periods of your promotion. 

I've then picked the Clone issue action and chose a few fields to set. You can choose your 37 fields.

Hope that helps!

Works perfectly, thank you Jane
