Summary0023195: Clone Issue modifies notes modified date in history

Hello, in our company we are using quite often the feature to clone issues including their notes. Now we always struggle with the fact that notes are added to the cloned issue, but their timestamps in issue history is destroyed, because all notes get last modified from the moment when the issue is cloned. This is an issue because sometimes the order of adding notes is relevant. Is this working as designed, or is there a possible tweak to keep history timestamps for cloned issues?

kind regards,

Is this working as designed

I am not sure if it's designed, but that's the way it's implemented at the moment.

Cloning issues including notes looks always a bit strange, as the clone does not reflect the real workflow.
Wouldn't it look even more strange, if the dates of the notes are older than the issue?

In 0025792:0063919 I wrote

It is not enough to add the seconds based on the order and write them in the change references copied from the old ticket.

The reason is that the copied notes were written by other users before the new ticket was copied, cloned or so on.
Therefore, it is OK if the note date is before the new ticket, because it is from an older one!!!

The change history should include a note copied from ID-old and the author (copier) of the new ticket.

So everyone knows their way around.

The author and the date of entry of the note or attachment must not be lost.
"The copyright is at the time before the new ticket" - that's OK only in this case this case if the issue history shows the Copy from ID and URL.

If you copy an ID with Checkbox in view_all_bug_page.php - the timestamps are correct.
So please realize the same in the clone issue function.
