To clone the issue status, the workflow of the target project must meet the following requirements:
The status must be available in the workflow of the target project.
The workflow must have a transition from the initial status to the status that should be cloned.
The transition to the status must not have required fields.
There shouldn’t be other workflow conditions or validators that prevent a transition from the initial status.
If you perform a Bulk Clone with a lot of issues, we recommend to configure an interim workflow.
