Automation for Jira - Writing a rule to move an issue to another project

This rule shows steps to move an issue to another project


While Jira has the option to move an issue to another project, this service isn't available to plugins or integrations like Automation for Jira Server.

The best workaround is to clone the issue and delete the original:

  1. Add a 'Clone issue' action and select the project you want to move the issue to. Automation for Jira Server will do its best to clone as many of the existing fields as possible, but items such as attachments don't move with the issue.

  2. Add a 'Delete issue' action to safely delete the original issue.
