runfromIssueList is not supporting the space in the field value updates.

sh jira.sh --action runFromIssueList --search "issue in linkedIssues(TFT-158,'is cloned by')" --common "--action updateIssue --issue @issue@ --summary 'JIRA DSCEDR'"

Run: --action updateIssue --issue TFT-157 --summary 'JIRA DSCEDR'

Error: Unexpected argument: DSCEDR'

Client error: 1 actions failed

You must use double quote around parameters that contain blanks: "JIRA DSCEDR"
