Hi there, 
When promoting from issues to a user story, the "type" does not seem to carry with it. Likewise, tags don't carry forward. 

What would the purpose be to lose information? Is it there but I need to expose it somehow?

Hi John

Issue types are not linked to user stories, it is a specific issue property. Tags on the other hand SHOULD carry forward, we will review this asap in the case there was a regression error.
Issue promotion tries to carry over as much information as possible but there are some differences between issues and user stories that make total migration impossible. For an issue type, you could use a specific tag or a user story custom field, but this would be manual.

We would love to know more about your use case, could you explain it a bit?

Hi Pablo, 
Thanks for replying. 

I learned that Tags carry forward at the time of promotion. After a promotion has occurred and a tag is added to an issue, it does not reflect in the US. I assume this is behaving as designed and probably makes sense to leave it that way

Our use case: We allow the users to add issues, and look for specific information.  We have put custom fields into the issues in order to capture this information (eg. acceptance criteria they have to "accept" the issue as being resolved" and assumed the information in the custom fields would be recreated in the new US user story when it was "Promoted"/created.  

Another example of information that possibly should transfer is the Date. If a user enters a date in the issues field, it should carry over to the US. 

On another note, when I copied a project to create a new one, certain things did not copy. I'll share here and you can do with it what you please as its not a critical function to us.
