Description

When creating a bunch of issues, I'd probably like to file them to a same target. It would make sense to pre-fill not only Tracker, but maybe all fields with values of previously created issue - except for Subject and Description.

It makes sense to me to pre-fill:

  • Assignee
  • Category
  • Priority
  • Target version
  • (maybe) Due date
  • Watchers
  • any custom fields

Hi,

May be "Create and continue" should remain as is, and new button to be added: "Create from this":
  • Create and continue - continues with blank issue
  • Create from this - continues with new issue filled with the contents of the current one

@Ivan, why multiplying entities? Do you have a use case that reasons these two cases?

#3 Updated by Ivan Cenov almost 8 years ago

After some re-thinking, I'd say you are right. 'Create and continue' may create this issue and the open new issue with the data of this issue. If one want new blank issue, the he/she may press 'New issue' at the project menu.

  1. when I click on "copy", some field-data get copied correct, but only Status "New" and the actual Status of the base-issue is selectable.
  2. when selecting "Create and continue" the appearing issue-edit-form has all status selectable, but no field-data from the base-issue is copied - which would be the expected behavior, when continuing the copy-function.
I'm using following environment:
  • Redmine version 2.3.1.stable
  • Ruby version 1.8.7 (x86_64-linux)
  • Rails version 3.2.13
  • Environment production
  • Database adapter MySQL

I would like to see this too.

I get around it by setting the fields I want to preserve in the GET parameters of the URL before I submit an issue, so for example:

my-redmine.com/projects/my-project/issues/new?issue[assigned_to_id]=3&issue[fixed_version_id]=15&issue[tracker_id]=2&issue[parent_issue_id]=255

Then after submitting the issue, I press the browser's back button to get back to the above URL so I can enter another issue with those same fields pre-filled.
