A way to clone every month?


Can you guys help me think of a way to help my "client": he has a request that comes back every month. He wanted to keep the issue open, but I advised him to clone it every time. Because reports are out of focus when an issue keeps being open.

What are other options? Is there a genius add-on for this (mass clone or appear in the future or ...?!) or another great tip on how to tackle this problem?

Thank you

You can write your own plugin to get it:

  • implement com.atlassian.scheduler.JobRunner interface
  • register it using com.atlassian.scheduler.SchedulerService with cron schedule you want
  • in jobRunner implementor find all issues you want to clone using com.atlassian.jira.bc.issue.search.SearchService
  • clone found issues using IssueManager
