Thanks, but where is the traceability with this? For example I can transition an issue between the service desk and JIRA software, the ID changes to match the new project it resides in, but if I go in to the object I don't have anything immediate that says to me that this new bug in the development project started life as a service desk call
That's true, you have to look in the history of the issue, and be aware that the old issue id it had refers to a service desk project.
I don't think Atlassian really expects you to move issues like that, especially as doing it will remove a customer's access to the issue they raised (not that there's any particular support for the other approach - having a button to say "create development bug/task/etc from this service request, and link them together", which is something I've done a few times now with scripts)
Thanks Nic, does look like it will need to be a hand and spade approach of closing off service ticket citing that the issue is a bug and making sure the unique refs for each are added in to the notes of the respective objects. Its a curious one, though I completely understand the point of a customer losing visibility etc (and its a good point!)
Yes, that's what we've done with Script Runner - injected a web-fragment that runs a script which creates a copy of the service request in the dev project and links them. A variation I've done in the past was to build it into the service request workflow, so that the agent would simply go "passed to dev" and that would do the issue create and link.
