How can I change the status when moving an issue?


How can I change the status of an issue when I move it to another project?
If the target project have the same statuses JIRA use as a default the same / old status from the original project. After moving one issue I can set teh desired status. But I wish there is a way to do this within the move-process.


Best regards

You can't - the move tries to keep it as simple as possible, and if it can avoid changing the status, it will.

That's what I know until now. But I hope for a tweak, a script or add-on etc.
