What approach could be used to perform a bulk clone, making changes only to the one field (Ideally change the release ID for the same project)? Is there a plug-in already available for this purpose or if we write our own plug-in what approach could be taken,what kind of plug-in would be recommended?
Just on thought, instead of bulk cloning, is it possible to clone an issue over and over again changing one of its fields(release field) through a plug-in? Is this possible through the API's provided and what kind of security/maintainance/support concern would it hold?
Any views on this would be appreciated.
JIRA Command Line Interface has some options. Easy to clone issues using cloneIssue or cloneIssues an update multiple fields at the same time. You will also need the Clone Plus Plugin for JIRA to do this. However, it might be easier just to create the issues directly if you know all the field settings. Do this by using createIssue. Futhurmore, you can use runFromList to do a bunch of these where the list is a comma separated list of release numbers.
