I'm trying to clone a Case, for that, I have created a button to copy data from the parent Case. I have a dependent picklist field(Experience__c) on the Case object. It is dependent on Product_Type__c. The dependent field is not getting populated with the value.

Any help is much appreciated. I read the issue is fixed in previous releases. But dont see its working for me.

It's not currently possible for Cases.

In Summer '21, they brought the ability to prepopulate dependent picklists with default values for a specified list of objects

You can now prepopulate a record event with default values in dependent picklists. Default values on dependent picklists are available on accounts, opportunities, contacts, leads, and custom objects.

You'll have to look at a different mechanism for this - possibly a screen flow where you can set default values for the dependent picklist or leveraging a LWC with recordEditForm. Otherwise, you could tackle this from the other side with a record-triggered flow to copy over the parent Case's picklist values if it's left empty if you do want to leverage the button URL or a quick action that also cannot set pre-defined field values for dependent picklists.
