There's two questions here.

For "template projects", you could write an add-on that provides a project template and embed code in that to automatically create a set of issues.

For "template issues", you could find or write an add-on that provides a post-function that can create issues, and tag it into the create issue process (I'd do it in script runner, but there are a number of add-ons in the market place that might be easier if you don't want to do the scripts)

Hi Nic Brough [Adaptavist] Thanks for your reply i have Groovy Runner(Script runner plugin for Atlassian JIRA). add-on so could you please let me know the process how to do with Script runner plugin.

Am not much familiar in scripting. So i will go ahead with the add-on so please let me know the process.

Ok, decide where in your process you want the issues to be created ("create" from what you've said I think), go to edit the workflow and find the "create" transition.  On there, add a post-function and select the scripted functions.  There is a built-in "create subtask" script you can use there!

@Nic Brough [Adaptavist] Thank you!

Could you please let me know the scripting process as well. So that in feature it may help to me.

I think you need to look at what I said before in your system.  You'll find a place to write your script when you do that.
