Bug: Crosslinking Issues from merge-request prefix does not work anymore


we are using gitlab.com and have a big repository with a lot of forks.
The crosslinking feature with prefixed merge requests seems to have stopped working since 2-3 weeks now. It has been of great value for us, to just prefix a branchname by the issue number and upon opening a new merge request all the labels, epics, milestones have been copied over from the issue.

Unfortunately this has stopped working, and even though we tried different things, we didn’t identify a successful method of copying over the issue metadata into a merge request.

Can you please advise how we can achieve that, as this has been a big time saver and is now a big time waste for us?

Kind Regards,
