Creating User Story and Tasks in Tandem with Confiforms IFTTT Macro

Likely an easy fix but I can't seem to find documentation explaining how to do this. 

Essentially I can create An IFTTT macro creating a JIRA ticket as an "Epic" and subsequently create a "Story" using the JIRA key created from the "Epic" as the field value for the custom data field tied to "Epic Link".

I can do the same thing to create a "Story" and then create a sub-task using the JIRA key value for the "parent" value in my JSON script.

What I can't seem to figure out is how to create a "Story" and then create a "Task" that is tied to that story automatically in a separate IFTTT macro following the Story created IFTTT macro. 

Can this be done? Is there a property like "parent" I can use to link the JIRA key to?

This is really a question about Atlassian Jira REST API and how to create a task as a sub-task for the story.

ConfiForms here is just a "worker"...


PS, I have found this  might help...

How could I have missed this link? As per usual you have the answers. I got it working off of this URL, thanks Alex!

can someone share the sample Json script to create EPIC and predecessor stories and subcategories on one click


Look at this tutorial and start setting up rules to create Jira issues (mapping is specific to your project, but the mentioned url shall help you to get started)

Then the first one is ready, write back the issue key created for your epic back to ConfiForms (we have bunch of examples demonstrating this concept in our wiki), then add more ConfiForms IFTTT rules to create "subcategories", setting the epic link to the issue key you have created in the first step
