How to clone an issue

You can use cloning to create new issues based on existing ones. You can clone issues in any queue that is available to you.

Tip. If you need to create similar issues on a regular basis, use templates.

To clone an issue:

  1. Open the issue page.

  2. Choose Actions → Clone issue.

  3. Fill in the fields:

    • Clone in — Select the queue where you want to create the cloned issue.

    • Copy issue fields — Select this option to keep the same issue parameters after cloning. If some of the settings are not available in the target queue (for example, versions or components), they will be left empty.

    • Link the cloned issue — If this option is selected, the issue and its clone will be linked.

    • Issue name — The same issue name is used by default, but you can change it.

    • Type — Select the type of issue. The issue types available depend on the settings of the target queue.
    • Status — Select the issue status. The available issue statuses depend on the settings of the target queue for the selected issue type.

    • Assignee and Followers — These settings are preserved by default, but you can change them.

  4. Click Clone.
