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