Error using JCLI cloneProject

Hi,

When trying to clone a project  using the JCLI I get an error

rankBeforeIssue: expected Object.
Clone  of Issue xxxx failed

I'm working under WIN10 and issued the following command

jira --action cloneProject --project "XXXX"  --toProject "XXXXBL10"  --cloneIssues --copyAttachments  --copySubtasks --copyVersions  --copyComponents

I would appreciate a hint what could be wrong

Thanks

Joachim

Sorry we missed this :(.

I would guess it is a custom field that is not a simple type and not a supported type - see Custom Field Types.

Create a support request and include the results of doing: -a getFieldValue --issue XXX-1 --field rankBeforeIssue --debug
That will tell us what kind of field it is.

In the mean time, you can always exclude problematic fields from cloning using something like:

--fieldExcludes rankBeforeIssue
