Found https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/93250/how-can-certain-jira-fields-be-restricted-from-cloning which I think is more doable for us as we have this plugin installed already. Testing this locally and will confirm if the solution works
is it possible to restrict certain system generated and custom fields from being cloned such as back-end identifiers, cost, story points, sprint vaue etc.. or basically clone only the description, team, project and epic link which are the most likely needed fields to be cloned.
