Create another issue and clear fields


is it possible to define which fields are cleared when I use the 'Create Another' issue function? It is nice that the summary is cleared, but I would also like to have the same for issue description and expected results (while fields like Version should be kept).

through use of post function and default value for custom field , you can achieve the above objective.

hi Cord,

check this API :

in setSummary() API , send the parameter as null . if there is any existing value then it will cleared.


thanks for the reply! I'm not a developer (just a user), but I assume you can set the status for each field when you create another issue? We will check this out, thanks!
