      Description

      In issues which have custom fields that are date fields: do not keep data in those fields while cloning.

      Workaround

      You can clear change closure status field after clone action via a post function.

      Steps to do this, you will need Jira Suite Utilities plugin:

      1. Edit the workflow.
      2. Click on the first step in the workflow.
      3. In the "Workflow Browser" section click "Create Issue"/"Create" transition.
      4. Add a post function to "Clear Field Value" for each field you don't want to clone.
      5. Publish the workflow.

      When you do a Clone it will fire the "Create Issue"/"Create" transition on the cloned issue and run the new post functions clearing them out.
      Note: The field is also cleared when a new issue is created.
