Normally JIRA Clone function clones all contents including Assignee field data
to cloned ticket. Is it possible to configure JIRA's Clone function not to clone
original ticket's Assignee data to the cloned ticket (in this case, Assignee field data is "Unassigned")? If yes, how can we come true?
I believe the only things you can configure for clone functionality are:
Info about configuring these on JIRA Server is here: https://confluence.atlassian.com/adminjiraserver073/configuring-issue-cloning-861254006.html
There isn't functionality to exclude certain fields (like Assignee) from the cloning process, as far as I know.
A workaround you can do is add a post function to the 'Create' transition in your workflow. For this, you can use the "Update Issue Field" post function and set the assignee field to "Unassigned".
This will ensure all newly created issues (including cloned ones) get assignee set to "Unassigned".
