How to automate a checklist or Tasks field with smart values?

I am trying to automate a checklist style list in the description section of a Jira ticket. Or, automate tasks to populate in the ticket. The end goal is to automate a checklist of tasks that can physically be checked off. 


Any ideas would be welcome! Thank you.

Another option could be to use; 

A little more complicated to automate but the checklist values are exposed in Jira's RESt API.

Easiest way would be to create a set of sub-tasks that can be physically moved to "Done".

Either via a manual trigger/Create Sub-task or at the start of each Sprint etc...whatever suits your situation.

I ended up using Tasklist for Jira because that is what we have in our instance. It worked by using automation to create the task itself, then in the description I used 

{tasklist}INSERT NAME OF TASKLIST{tasklist} 


this did the trick, thanks everyone
