Copy inner issues relations along with issues
|Target version:||Candidate for next major release|
When one or more issues are copied, the relations get lost. This is especially annoying when a structure of issues with precedes/follows or blocks/blocked by relations gets copied.To clarify this, especially when a list of issues gets copied, there are two possible types of relations:
- the relations which are inside the copied structure
- the relations that point out of the copied structure
In my opinion the first type (inner relations) should be automatically mapped to the new created (copied) structure.
This would be the same behavior as when a complete project is copied. For the second type it could also be reasonable to have a setting in the bulk-copy page like "Copy outer relations", if such relations are existing in the selected structure.
I think this bugfix would even resolve request #11647 to some extent, because then it would be possible to create one "template"-project from which frequently used structures (e.g. like a software release procedure etc.) could always be copied by the users to their "real" projects.

This would also be useful to us. we use a structure of issus -> child issues with set proceeds/follows as a template which is copied. At the moment the users just re-add the relationships manually but it would def add convenience to be able to maintain that.
