Original Estimate copied during cloning? Can we omit?

Kim P December 7, 2021

I'm noticing that during cloning, the original estimate value is carried to the cloned issue.  Is this the expected behavior?  Is there any way to omit it from copying?

*I am aware I can create an automation rule to clear the field after clone is complete.

That's expected, you get very limited options when it comes to Cloning. Atlassian itself suggests using Automation to fix up things after the fact.

Just after you hit the CLONE button, the options you are allowed to ignore are presented.  They are quite limited, unfortunately.  (at least in Cloud)
