JMWE Create / Clone issue - How to Copy Attachments

I'm using JMWE and the Create / Clone issue Post Function.  One of the things I'd like to do is copy the attachments from the current issue to the new cloned issue.  I've found some Groovy code in the documentation related to attachments.  But I'm not sure how to reference the new/cloned issue to copy the attachment to.  Currently it's just copying onto the same issue.  

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.AttachmentManager

AttachmentManager attachmentManager = ComponentAccessor.getAttachmentManager();

attachmentManager.copyAttachments(issue, currentUser, issue.key);


Any ideas how I can reference the new issue?  It seems like it should be obvious, but my searches aren't getting me anywhere.  Thanks!

If the problem is still relevant you should to add field in which you want to clone and write what to clone issue.attachment 

In the screenshot below I clone the summary and attachment into new issue
