Jira: Increase summary Iteration number when issue is cloned

I'm cloning an issue using the Clone and link issue post function every time the issue is closed.
I have the summary getting copied from the source issue, but I need the iteration number to be added to the summary every time the issue is cloned.

1st issue: summary: Text Iteration 0
when issue is cloned once, summary: Text Iteration 1, again when issue is cloned summary: Text Iteration 2 and so on.

Any help is appreciated.

If you use the following code in the "Additional issue actions" field the number will be incremented in the cloned issue.

def matcher = issue.summary =~ /\d+$/

if (matcher[0]) {
def num = (matcher[0] as long) + 1

issue.summary = sourceIssue.summary.replaceAll('\\d+$', num.toString())

Thanks Adam, will try this.
