How do I configure the jira.clone.prefix field to add the original issuekey to a cloned issue?

I'm trying to set my jira.clone.prefix field in my advanced settings to automatically include a reference to the original ticket in the summary of the cloned ticket that is being created. What would I need to put in the jira.clone.prefix field in order to get this to work?


I was trying like @issuekey@ or @parent.issuekey@ from what I was able to scrounge up by googling, but I think that might be limited to the clone plus plugin. Wasn't able to find much information about referencing tickets on the confluence wiki for Jira.

Nothing - you'll need to amend the cloning code to do that. The prefix field is a simple string.

(Although, that is quite a nice idea, except that I'd point out that clones are already linked back to their source automatically, so it might be a bit of a duplication of information)

Not what I was hoping to hear but at least a reasonable response.


Clone Plus Plugin for JIRA allows this and many other things to be customized.
