Using Scriptrunner, I'm trying to automate the creation of a set of subtasks.

I want a set of subtasks created, which are the components of the parent.  So, if I have a Parent issue with 3 component names of "X", "A" and "B", then I want 3 subtasks created for that jira.

Here's my code at this point, but it's not working:

(I've put it into a Post-function.)

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueInputParametersImpl

def issue = event.issue

Collection components = issue.getComponents();
Iterator componentIterator = components.iterator();
while (componentIterator.hasNext()) {
component =
String componentName = component.getString("name");
String componentId = component.getString("id");


def createSubtask(Issue parentIssue) {
def subTaskManager = ComponentAccessor.subTaskManager
def asUser = ComponentAccessor.jiraAuthenticationContext.loggedInUser
def constantsManager = ComponentAccessor.constantsManager
def issueService = ComponentAccessor.issueService
def subtaskIssueType = constantsManager.allIssueTypeObjects.findByName("Approval Sub-task")
def issueInputParameters = new IssueInputParametersImpl()
.setSummary(parentIssue.summary+'- **'+componentName)
//.setDescription('A description')

def createValidationResult = ComponentAccessor.issueService.validateSubTaskCreate(asUser,, issueInputParameters)

if (!createValidationResult.valid) {
log.error createValidationResult.errorCollection

def newIssue = issueService.create(asUser, createValidationResult).issue
subTaskManager.createSubTaskIssueLink(parentIssue, newIssue, asUser)

@Jason Stein This should work. Make sure it's in post-function before "Re-index an issue to keep indexes in sync with the database."

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.customfields.manager.OptionsManager
import com.atlassian.jira.user. ApplicationUser
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueInputParametersImpl
import com.atlassian.jira.bc.project.component.ProjectComponent

def constantManager = ComponentAccessor.getConstantsManager()
def user = ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext().getLoggedInUser() as ApplicationUser
def issueFactory = ComponentAccessor.getIssueFactory()
def subTaskManager = ComponentAccessor.getSubTaskManager()
def issueManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager()

Issue parentIssue = issue

if (parentIssue.getIssueType().name == 'Task')
Collection components = issue.getComponents();

//def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
//def data = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject('customfield_10488')
//def listq = issue.getCustomFieldValue(data)

components.each {
MutableIssue newSubTask = issueFactory.getIssue()
it.getName() == "Sub-task"

def newIssueParams = ["issue" : newSubTask] as Map

issueManager.createIssueObject(user, newIssueParams)
subTaskManager.createSubTaskIssueLink(parentIssue, newSubTask, user) "Issue with summary ${newSubTask.summary} created"
