(Scriptrunner) auto create stories WITHIN the epic.

So I know that auto creating issue types with scriptrunner is pretty easy with the provided scripts, and im using the Clone an issue, create a link script, but it's not quite solving my problem. I have a post function on an epic that I want to auto create 3 stories WITHIN the epic on the transition, not just creating a link between the issues after auto create. Does that make sense? Any help would be great.

Epic links are a bit funny - they're not quite links, but logically, they are.

If you've got a script for "create issue X from Epic-123 and link X back to Epic-123", you're almost there.  But replace the "link X back to Y" with "update custom field 'epic link' with the 'epic name' on Epic-123"

Hi Nic,

I appreciate the answer but I'm not sure what the script would actually be. The default scripts do not provide something that will copy a value from one field on the original (Epic) issue to the newly cloned (Story) issue with a new custom field (Epic Link) to actually create that different "link". I'm relatively new to scripting and there doesn't seem to be any provided scripts that actually do this.
