Clone Plus: Add Clone prefix to summary field

Mikael Sandberg Community Leader Jan 25, 2019

I am trying to create a file and cannot figure out how to add Clone prefix to the summary field. The documentation have to different options for it:


# Set fields = Clone of issue with summary: %original_summary%

 How to add CLONE prefix to summary

# Set the summary to be like the default Clone operation by adding "CLONE - " = CLONE - @summary@

I have tried both orginal_summary and summary with @ and %, but when I test it out the summary field is not changed.  I even tried to just use the property file listed in the last link without any modifications and the summary field does not get the prefix. What am I missing?

I am using version 6.3.0 if that makes any difference.

Found the issue, my test environment needed to be rebooted. Once it was up everything worked as expected.

@Mikael Sandberg ,


Is this setting = CLONE - @summary@

working fine after jira restart?

We also looking same prefix CLONE - should be added for very clone+ & clone++.

Hi @Dayanand,

As far as I remember yes, it was working fine after the reboot, but it has been almost 3 years since I messed with the app, and I have since moved on to a different company that is not using Clone Plus.
