Customize the "Create linked issue" Screen


is it possible to configure the shown custom fields on the "Create linked issue" screen + adding tabs?

The only way I found was setting the specific custom fields "required" in the Field Configuration but they shouldn't be always mandatory.

@Christian Pascher Did you ever find an answer to your query? I would love to know too.

definitely +1
Though I noticed that mandatory fields are displayed on the create linked issue screen. You just have to set the desired fields mandatory in the corresponding field configuration scheme for the issuetype and they appear on the create linked issue-screen.
Its not an optimal solution and not always applicable but it helped me at least on some occasions, so I hope it could be of use to someone here

+1 - especially something as simple as Assignee should be avaialble.

Hi, Community!
Please place all your +1's on this issue and vote for it. 

@Shaunna Bennett-Smith unfortunately not.

I also would like to be able to do this!

I ended up using Clone Plus by Bob Swift to create my own clone/link operation in the Ops bar.

Allows you to fill in all of the custom fields as you'd expect (well it has for us so far).

I still haven't found a way to hide "Create Linked Issue" though so have renamed it for now and put the fear into my users to not use it.

How to add Create linked issue Contractor and Priority to the screen?

I had this issue and I created a browser extension that may be helpful for someone else.

It's good enough for me.
