Is there a way to Automate "MOVING" an issue ticket?

Alexander Wildes Jr April 11, 2023

Hello everyone,

I am reaching out to see if there is a way to automate Moving an issue ticket such that the ticket maintains the same KEY but has a different issue type all within the same project.   I know I can automate the cloning of an issue into a different issue type, however this will create a new issue ticket with a different Key.   I would also like to update the status field to a particular status within the workflow of the destination issue type (the workflows are different).     Or if there are suggestions of how to re-engineer my ultimate goal:

issue ticket with Issue type 1 collects data ...during its final status of its  workflow provide the option to move issue ticket to issue type 2 maintaining the KEY and updating the issue to a status within the workflow associated with issue type 2 .. all within the same project.

I hope this makes sense.

No, Automation does not have a "move" function.  This is because changing the project and/or issue type is a structural thing - all the config hangs off them, and most moves changing the config.  They're not really moves, they're migrations, and they tend to need humans involved.

The exception is when two issue types are identically configured to use the same workflow and fields - in that case you can simply "edit" the issue type.

Thank you Nic!  I have decided to go the route of Cloning.
