Auto Clone an Issue in JIRA Cloud

Is there an efficient way to auto-clone an issue in JIRA?  

I want to clone issues from one project to another, linking the issues in the process.  It would be terrific if there were a way to automate this process in JIRA cloud.  

I have noticed some plugins that claim to do it on the server version but none of them are available for the cloud based version.

Thanks for the response.  Unfortunatly, I am running JIRA Cloud, and the feature appears to work differently.  It seems I am only able to link to existing issues, rather than having the ability to create a linked issue.  /smh

I'm not familiar with Cloud much but can you try to use "g+g" and search for "create linked issue" action like this?


For Jira cloud, there is now a marketplace add-on called Deep Clone for Jira that allows to clone issues across projects, linking them together with a "clones" issue-link. It also has a lot of other features like cloning attachments, comments etc. and also bulk-cloning up to 1000 issues at once.

Disclaimer: I'm the product manager of this add-on.
