For a few days, the cloning of issues does not work anyway. I verified my permission scheme, and concerned users, can both create/modify issues, and modify reporters... but it still does not work.
The only change I made is the use of jira.permission.edit.user permission on each JIRA status in my workflow. In my permission scheme, I allowed users to modify users in general, but in my Workflow, using jira.permission.edit.users, I restricted this right for all status since the 2nd status... is that a problem ? do I have to allow cloning issue using any properties on each status ? anything else ?
Any help greatly appreciated,
Thanks a lot,
You might also look at the issue type that you are cloning. I ran into an issue when I was trying to clone an issue, but I had changed my field that are required since I initially created the issue. For example, when I first created the issue, i didn't require a custom field called Client. It happened that my issue didn't have this field populated. So, when I tried to clone it, not all required fields were input and you don't get an error - the clone box just dismisses, with some believing that it was cloned, but it really wasn't - you are just returned to the original issue.
Anyway, you might look at that.
Hi..someone made a field required and the clone box disappears as you have explained above...I was wornder whether what's the solution to this. We need to keep this field as required. Will re-indexing help? Is there any other alternative. Since our installation is large so we lock and rebuild indexes occasionally.Any help would be appreciated...thanks a lot!!
if you have "Create Issues" permission on project permission scheme then you should able to clone the issue
can confirm following thing
are able to clone any issue other that current project? or are you able to clone any issues on any project?
are you able to see the clone operation under "More Actions" in issue view screen?
if you are able see, are you getting error m any messages while cloning?
First of all, thanks for your answer.
User have "Create issues" and "Modify issues" in Permission Scheme.
I only have 1 project of the moment.
Yes, I am able to seed "Clone" in "More Actions" menu...
No error message error appears and no message during the operation of cloning.
A dialogbox display on the screen asking for the summary I would like to associate with the clone issue...
But the result is : the clone of my issue is the issue itself, and summary has no changed, even I specified "CLONE of my initial issue..."
Ok thanks to all. I found a solution.
The problem was in the validators of my create transition. I had a script specified in this one, that blocked the cloning issue operation. So I move this script in the following transition (the second one in my workflow) and that's work very fine right now ! :-)
I've tried with an another issue located on another project, and it works. It creates a new issue, with a different ID and a summary beginning by CLONE like I specified.
So it seems that my problem of cloning is in relation with the project I am trying to clone an issue on...
