How to trigger an Issue create event when moving n issue to a new poject Edited

Hi All,

I have set up quite a few logic in terms of post functions in my workflow such that when an issue is created in my project a number of activities take place upon ticket creation. 

However, if someone moves a ticket to my project from another project the same post fucntions will not trigger on the new ticket. I am wondering if there is a way to trigger an Issue Create event when a ticket is moved from another projet to my project. 


Thank you

It's not a "create" though.  The issue already exists, it's got content and a history.

What you need to do is trap the "move" event and replicate the post-functions in a listener.

Thanks Nic for your quick response. How do I trap the "move"?

With a listener - they're for picking up and responding to events.
