I am using the create on transition plugin. We have original issues that we want to partly copy (and link of course)
For example we want to copy the summary, BUT let the user get a screen where the suggestion for summary is the original but it should be possible to change - wihout changing the original issue. Is that possible without creating "temporary" fields?
And if using temporary fields, how do we solve it for components?
Hey I know that you already solved your problem but your question remembered that:
Basically you can continue using just one field "Summary" but any updates that you made during transition will be discarded.
In my case I only need to discard a multicheckbox field (more complicated).
I Have 2 possible solution for your problem (hope so).
1 - Can be the order of your postfunction. Remember! any edits are save during those two postfunction:
Be careful that you are using your create on transition after those two
2 - You're using %original_summary% (maybe can be same solution as 1), try only %summary%.
Try it and let me know.
Well, what I did for Summary and Description is that I created new fields called New Summary and New Description, and those I show on the transition screen. Then in the create on transition I set the summary to the value on New Summary and same for Description. But for components that is harder. So we will see if I can convince the client to copy the value and then edit afterwards. Thank you for replying!
Hello Susanne, I did that with introducing temporary fields, pre-populate the mask from the original fields (using script runner or behaviour plugin) and then create on transistion, then finishing the transaction and afterwards emptying the temporary fields again. If you want to talk about this (I assume you are German as me?) contact me via mobile or mail.
Hi Maud, I have a similar requirement. When I clone a exiting jira issue, I need the fields to be editable while it gets created. As of now, cloned issue gets created with the values of original issue and i need to manually edit the cloned issue to change the values. Can you please let me know how you got this done through script runner? Regards, Bhargavi.
sorry for being that late, I haven't seen your comment in time.
What you need to do is not clone but "Create-on-transition" with the plugin from Bob Swift. With this plugin you may create a new issue using either the fields of the original one as identical copies or change whatever you wish to. If there is some new value you want to use, then you need to define a new custom field and show that on the mask you use for the transaction. If you could be a bit more specific, than I can help you better :-)
