Copying issues with the same status

Added by Laurent Toson 11 months ago


I know there was some discussions few years ago about what should be the status of a copied issue. It's currently not possible to configure this setting and when I try to copy an issue, the default status is 'Draft'. However, I would like to keep the same status (I'll call it 'Approved') when copying because the user who can copy can't set a 'Draft' issue to 'Approved' because it needs validation from other people. The only not viable solution is to authorize in the workflow the transition New issue -> Approved but as I said, if the user is creating a new issue and not copying one, he shouldn't have the right to approve it. Maybe someone encountered the same problem and have a solution.

Thank you for your help.
