Copy attachments

Use it to define configurations to copy or move attachments to the newly created issue.

(info) Tip: You might choose 'Move Attachments added during Transition'. The user then adds some attachments on the transition screen of the origin issue.
However, since they are moved to the newly created issue, it appears as if they added the attachments to the new issue.


Conditional copying attachments

Conditional copying attachment (controlled by custom field) is always only checked for the issue in transition regardless of whether the issue in transition is a source or destination.

Organizing operations 


First, you create your origin issue, which you’ll call Hiring a Marketing Assistant. Instead of manually creating linked issues and copying/setting field values, JSU’s set of Operations can help automate these tasks.

On When adding the ‘Create Create Linked Issue’ Issue post function to the ‘In progress’ transition

, configure the fields you prefer with the three 3 JSU operations:

  1. Copy a field value from the origin issue to a new linked issue

  2. Copy the value from one field to another field within the origin issue, and

  3. Set the value of a field in a new linked issue

First, you can copy a field from the origin to the new issue. Let's copy the assignee of the task to the assignee of the subtask. Then, you can copy a value from a field of the origin issue to another field of the origin issue. We'll try it by copying the summary to the description and prepending it with a dash. Configure the last operation by setting a value for the summary of the new issue. We'll set it to "Create contract".

When you are done with your configuration, select Add at the bottom of the page to save the post function. You can do the same for as many subtasks as you want to have automatically created. Finally, publish your workflow and go back to your issue. Move it to
