How to copy comments from cloned issue as soon as someone comments?


So, I have created a Project-A and  it creates a cloned issue in Project-B  on a transition using post function.

• Now, I want that if anyone comments on cloned issue in Project-B, it should be copied on Project-A issue.

• Comments should be copied  from Project-B to Project-A, not only on transition but  as soon as it is commented.

Is this possible?

Environment: JIRA Cloud.

Hi Surbhi,

Currently, to copy a comment from a linked issue to the main issue, it's necessary to use an add-on like Automation for Jira. There is a free version where you can test everything that you need.
Once you install, you can create this automation:

Please, give it a try and let us know how it goes.


Hi @Angélica Luz , 

Thanks for the response. 

We do have JMWE plugin for JIRA.Is there any way this can be achieved using Nunjucks Templates/filters?




Hi @Angélica Luz ,


Can we copy comments while cloning the Jira issue in cloud?



Hi Surbhi,

Unfortunately no! With JMWE you can automate an action on the trigger of a transition only. You could use listeners provided by any other add-on to accomplish it.
