pre-created project template with sub-tasks

We have a specific requirement to build a project template with sub-tasks loaded with it.

And if possible, need to link (group)sub-tasks to each status of the workflow.

Could anyone help me with this?

Some of your question is not clear to me though, on a couple of points.

  • You will need to create issues first, so that your sub-tasks have a parent to live under.
  • Sub-tasks are issues, which move through workflows.  I don't know what you mean by "link/group sub-tasks to a status".  They'll have their own status, based on the position in their workflow.

Yes, I am following the document to go create my own template.


Link/group sub-tasks:

I am looking for a way to assign sub-tasks to each status of the workflow through the template.

Hope that is clear.

No, I am sorry, but it is not clear at all.

An issue in JIRA has a status.  A single status.  It can have only one.  "assign to each status" says you want issues in all status, which is nonsense.

If the workflow is;

To do --> In Progress --> Testing --> Done ( consider these four as Workflow Status)

So while the issue is  "In Progress" status, I need to load few sub-tasks

(need to load this default through a template so users does not have to create in each issue they  created)


So by "load", you mean "create sub-tasks" and "template" means you want to fill in some fields.

I'd use one of the "create sub-task" post-functions.  You may need to look in the marketplace for suitable ones.

How to manage many similar workflows?

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 ...
