Using the CLI, I access a list of issues using a filter. I want to clone those issues and then link the clones to another issue.
I'd like to use runFromIssueList with an action file something like this:
--action cloneIssue --issue @entry@
--action linkIssue --issue TC-2290 --toIssue @issue@ --link "10803"
but, of course I can't because runFromIssueList doesn't assign @entry@, it assigns @issue@, and cloneIssue doesn't appear to assign @issue@ to be used in a later action. I'm happy to do some scripting, but the only way I've found to capture the key of the newly created clone is by parsing the console output, and I sure hope there's a simpler way.
How do I do what I need?
Bob. Thanks, as always, for your great support. Yes. I must be blind. It's also on the How To Page. Somehow I missed both of them. I didn't see it listed as a replacement variable on the general command documentation page like the variables are on the run commands, and, apparently, didn't look anywhere else.
