Here's an example of what I want to do. I have a task "Recipe" with a subtask "Start". I want to clone the task "Recipe" to a new task "QuickRecipe". I'd like to have the new subtask that is cloned renamed to "QuickRecipe Start" but I don't know how I should setup "jira.clone.prefix" to accomplish this (or if it is possible)? Thanks!
Hi @Omar Mussa,
At present when you clone a task and a sub-task, they cloned task and sub-task both have the same text prefixed to their Summary. So in your example above, if you change "jira.clone.prefix" to "quick", the result would be a task of Quick Recipe and a sub-task of Quick Start. It's worth noting that the "jira.clone.prefix" will apply to all issues in your instance, so all cloned issues will be prefixed with whatever you set here.
I must not have been clear - we want to change the prefix every time we create a new cloned task so it is not practical for us to change the jira.clone.prefix each time. Can we embed a variable into the jira.clone.prefix that would be the equivalent to the new parent task name? If so, what would the variable be? I can't figure this out from the documentation.
