Automatically open the create subtask screen after clicking create issue


I would like to know if its possible to automatically open the create subtask screen after creating an issue. It would be much easier for the users to start adding subtask immediately after issue is created, rather than first click on the issue -> more -> Create subtask.

JIRA does not have this feature. You can either:

  • Create a javascript or an add-on to do what you want. I'm highly against the Javascript option since it's messy, hard to maintain, hellish and not my taste.
  • Suggest this feature to Atlassian via


Thank you for the awnser. What about jumping to the issue after it has been created ? 

What do you mean jumping? If you mean opening the issue itself after creating, you may just have to code that as well.
