You can do it if you add a simple groovy script as a post-function on the start progress transition. Here is an example:
ComponentManager componentManager = ComponentManager.getInstance()
CommentManager commentManager = componentManager.getCommentManager()
commentManager.create(issue, transientVars.context.caller, "Your automatic comment", false)
Generally, it's very odd to put a comment on an issue as you create it - comments are for a discussion, why wouldn't you just put what you want to talk about in the description?
Anyway, the short answer is "code". You'll want to find/write a post function or listener that will run on "issue created" and add a comment. As usual, I'd use the Script Runner to do it, but there are other scripting add-ons that could do it too I think.
I have multiple projects that use variations of the same base workflow. The variations depend on the requirements of the project or issue type. The variations mostly come in the form of new statuses ...
