Hi @ZhangXiaoyu ,

welcome to the Atlassian community!

Please, could you specify your use case? Do you need to clone issues as part of transition in a workflow or based on an issue event?

Btw, here a useful starting point for your request

Hope this helps,


clone issues as part of transition in a workflow,
I would like to clone an issue from one project into several different projects without changing the issueType  

here an useful code :

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor;
import com.atlassian.jira.event.type.EventDispatchOption;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueFactory;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueManager;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue;
import com.atlassian.jira.project.Project;
import com.atlassian.jira.project.ProjectManager;
import com.atlassian.jira.user.ApplicationUser;

IssueFactory issueFactory = ComponentAccessor.getIssueFactory();
IssueManager issueManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager();
ProjectManager projectManager = ComponentAccessor.getProjectManager();
ApplicationUser currentUserObj = ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext().getLoggedInUser();

Project destinationProject = projectManager.getProjectByCurrentKey("YOUR DESTINATION PROJECT KEY HERE");

MutableIssue newissue = issueFactory.getIssue();
newissue.setSummary (issue.getSummary());
issueManager.updateIssue(currentUserObj, newissue, EventDispatchOption.DO_NOT_DISPATCH, false);


Please, try it!
