I created a custom field called "goal" and for some reason when I set that field on an issue and then created a linked issue, the "goal" field gets copied over into the newly created linked issue. I don't have this set in Jira automation or behavior or any other script that I can think of. It copies over values of the other custom fields, as well. Does anyone have advice on how I can turn this off, since most of the time my liked issues shouldn't have the same field values as the original issue?
Yes it will do that if the fields are associated with the other project. If you don’t want that, then disassociate the field in the other project. If however you want to reuse that field in the other project but have unique values then you could use automation to clear the field once the linked issue was created possibly
Really? I've never encountered that.
Do you mean across to JWM projects made with the same template?
@Anja Brkljacic are these linked issues in another project, or the same one? Also, are there any hints in the history tab of the newly created, linked issues?
