you mean, need to copy the comments from parent to cloned issue then try with this code

CommentManager commentMgr = ComponentAccessor.getCommentManager();
Collection<Comment> comments = commentMgr.getComments(sourceIssue);
for (Comment comment : comments) {
	commentMgr.create(clonnedissue, comment.getAuthor(), comment.getBody(), comment.getGroupLevel(),comment.getRoleLevelId(), comment.getCreated(), false);

make sure you have updated source and linked issue objects as per requirement


this works with Groovy runner? i am using Script workflow function "Clones an issue and links" and there i can fill Additional issue actions. Please can you help me how to configure parent and cloned issue?


i can see there this option:

issueInputParameters.setComment('Write your comment here')

you have to replce the following objects

1. sourceIssue: it should be current issue object, i think you ca use as issue

2. clonnedissue: it should be clonned issue object, i am not sure how to get this


Not sure if you could finally do it? I want to do the same thing but could not find out how to make it work.

this question remains still open :(

This one doesn't work, even after I changed 'clonedissue' to 'issue' in the script Rambanam provided below. Error Null pointer assignment somewhere.
