Create an issue for two projects simultaneously

Hi everybody,

I'd like to know if it is possible to create an issue for 2 projects simultaneously.

On other terms, I'd like to be able to assign the created issue (see figure below) to more than one project.

I imagine that it's not possible as we can't select more than one project according to the figure below.

Is there any way to do this instead of creating the issue twice for the two projects ?

Thanks a lot

Best regards

After creation, you can clone the issue and then move it to the new project. Any other solution will involve some coding.

Every JIRA issue belongs to one project. So you would need two issues

Thank you so much for the answer.

If I clone the issue and then move it, it'll be a hole between issues ID (something like that FA-1, FA-2, FA-4 supposing that I've cloned then moved FA-3) ; I've already asked the question here to avoid the hole but unfortunately, there is no solution.

Jobin, you said it's possible to do by coding. Could you tell me where can I find a sort of help on coding in JIRA please ?
