Deep Clone offers advanced features, that are not available in the standard clone feature of Jira.
It’s possible to clone certain data that is usually not clonable (e.g. comments, issue status).
You are flexible to decide which field you want to clone, and which not.
The clone can be moved to another project and issue type while cloning.
Some data can be created in the target project while cloning (components, labels, versions, sprints).
More details about configuration options
It is possible
Apart from that you can decide which content you want to copy over from the original issue to the clone.
Either copies the component
Or creates new component with identical name in the target project.
Either copies the version
Or creates new version with identical name in the target project.
You can select that the original time the comment was created at will be added to the comment as the first line (since the comments themselves will be shown as being created when you clone the issue).
Issue links (excluding the "clones" issue links)
Remote links (eg. Confluence or web-links)
Either copies the Sprint ID.
Or creates a new sprint with identical name in the target project.
Clone other editable fields (not shown in the “Create issue” screen)
You'll see in parentheses next to these how many of an embedded type would be cloned, e.g. "Attachments (1)" would show that we've detected 1 attachment that would be cloned if the checkbox is activated.
In the advanced options, you can control some other details. Some of the items are checked by default. These are also provided by the built-in clone functionality of Jira. The intention is that the default settings replicate the default Clone functionality from Jira as much as possible.
Can be edited.
