Possible Bug / Feature Request

When cloning an issue any associated dates (start, end and due dates) are also cloned as they are.

This can result on cloning start dates and end dates in the past - surely these should be cleared?

Additionally, surely the due date should be adjusted to reflect the new occurrence's month?

Hello Lee,

Actually this is an expected behavior, as the Clone function copies the entire issue. We have a feature request raised to allow more cloning options and to allow users choose fields to be cloned or not. Please find the feature request on the link below:

https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-5052

 

Alternatively, you can consider using this plugin to have more options when cloning issues.

Thanks Arthur. While it makes sense that this is the default behavior for JIRA, it is not what we would expect from a recurring issue plugin as it makes no sense to clone new issues with past due dates (as everything appears overdue). Probably one for the plugin developers rather than JIRA.
