How to clone an issue B when I create an issue A ?

Hello,

Is it possible to clone an issue B when I create an issue A ? 

And...in step 2, is it possible to update fields of the issue C (the cloned one) by the value of the issue A ?

I know it is not easy :)

Oliver,

This should be able to be done. But it really comes down to what relationship is B to A. Or is this just harded. E.g. When a Bug is created, clone TASK-123.

If the relationship is more dynamic, it would still be possible but may require a little more.

I'd imagine the rule would look like:

  • Trigger - Create issue
  • Condition to make sure you only do it for certain issues (Issue A)
  • Branch/Related Issues to get Issue B. E.g. JQL: key = TASK-1234
    • Clone issue
    • Set fields to copy from Trigger Issue

I hope that is what you were after.

 

Cheers,

Nick

Thank you Nick
