"Clones an issue and links" post function. How to set issue security level of linked issue?

Hi everybody,

i'm using "Clones an issue and links" and i want to set a different security level for the linked issue.

I'm using the following code:

issue.securityLevel?.name = "Restricted to Reporter"

But the security level of the issue that is created after the execution of post function inherits the security level of the original issue.

Any ideas on that?

Thanks in advance,

If you do not want to set any security level to your linked issue do not put an id between the brackets.
