You could clone an issue with IssueFactory.cloneIssueWithAllFields(issue). The function would return the new issue. Then you could create a link with IssueLinkManager.createIssueLink

Hi Alexey,

Thanks for the reply.

The Jira version I use is 6.4.14, the method IssueFactory.cloneIssueWithAllFields(issue) doesn't exist for this version.

https://docs.atlassian.com/software/jira/docs/api/6.4.14/com/atlassian/jira/issue/IssueFactory.html

Since the cloneIssueWithAllFields doesn't exist, do we have to copy all the fields manually?

Thanks.

Yes, You need to copy required fields by yourself. You can find more info here:
