You can use "Create issues and subtasks" post-function of JIRA Workflow Toolbox.

You can give me more details on what you want to implement, and I will be able to give you the exact configuration you need.

Hi Fidel,


Thanks for your reply. It would be much appreciated if you can provide the configuration without any plugins.


Details of requirement as follows:


 We have two projects in Jira :

  • TEM
  • PT


  • For TEM project, we create Task and subtask ( we are able to do this task)
  • For TEM project task there are more than 5-6 subtasks. For one of the sub-task, if the status is updated (like To-do, start progress etc) then automatically this should create a TASK in PT project with status “New”


Just wondering is it possible to handle configuration for only one sub-task?  Usually the sub-task which I need configuration contains text “ Coordinate shakedown testing”


Is it possible to create post validation functions based on the text? If not please advise what is the best solution.


Your help would be much appreciated




Hi Vijaya,

First of all, sorry for the delay in my response. It seems that Atlassian Answers has stop sending email notifications for some time, and I didn't notice your questions.

You can implement the behavior you describe using "Create issues and subtasks" post-function. It's not possible to do it without any plugin.

In order to restrict issue creation to only the subtask with “Coordinate shakedown testing” text (in the Summary?, Description?,...) you have to insert in parameter Conditional execution a boolean expression similar to this:

matches(%{00001}, "(?si).*coordinate shakedown testing.*")

where %{00001} is field code for Description. If you want to look for the text in the Summary use %{00000} instead.

Please, let me know if you have any question about the configuration of the rest of the parameters of the post-function.

It seems that you need some code for this. 

Easiest solution - script Runner plugin. is it acceptable for you to use it?
