Is it possible to use variables in the issue summary during cloning (using Deep Clone)?

Marianne Lee _Nagarro_ September 10, 2019

Hi!

I'm looking at using Deep Clone during a workflow post function.  Is it possible to use variables in the issue summary during cloning?  If it is possible, what is the format for variables?

Under Advanced options -- Prefix summary: 

e.g. % SUMMARY + " - " + % ISSUE KEY

 

Best Regards

Marianne

Hi @Marianne Lee _Nagarro_ ,

We're happy to announce that we released an update for Deep Clone for Jira which enables you to replace variables in the summary. 

We hope you like it :)

Hi @Marianne Lee _Nagarro_ ,

Currently it's not possible to use variables in the issue summary with Deep Clone for Jira. You can only add any prefix but not replace or delete something from the summary.

You can send a feature request to support@codefortynine.com . We will discuss it in our upcoming Product Meeting and can get back to you via Email.

I hope that helps!

Best regards,

Marlene

Not sure if this is what you are looking for, but my original issue is when I clone an issue I wanted the issues key in the newly cloned issues summary.  In the field editor I selected "Summary" and then "Jira expression" and I used the following which worked for me.

issue.key + ' - ' + issue.summary

@Marlene Kegel - codefortynine Do you have additional documentation on this feature?  Is it available in fields other than Summary?

Hi @Troy Anderson,

You can read more about the Field Editor in our documentation. 

It might be interesting that we offer the possibility to edit field values using Jira expressions. E.g. you could set the "Start Date" field of the current date when cloning. 

Which field would you like to edit with Deep Clone for Jira
