Hi @Jaipal Singh , 


when you're cloning the issue in Automation, you should set the "Linked Issues" field in order to create the link between the issues. This is how I've done it :

Let me know if this helps, 



I don't get that - bizarre!


I get the following:

I think all you are missing is to click on "Choose fields to set" and then to choose "Linked Issues". Then you will get the same screen as Alexis.
