Bugzilla - Clone a Bug

Bugzilla has the provision of "Cloning" an existing bug. The newly created bug keeps most of the settings from the old bug. This helps in tracking similar concerns that require different handling in a new bug.

To use this, go to the bug that user wants to clone. Then click on the “Clone This Bug” link on the footer of the bug page as shown in the screenshot below.
