Automatically create sub-task by submitting a form

I hope you can help me with my issue (or in fact my wish). I've already searched through this community and couldn't find an answer.

I'm using Jira Forms and project automation within Jira. But now I'm curious if I can combine it to solve my issue.
An user will create a new story by filling a pre-defined form. It's about a 'Lessons Learned' session after closing projects. For each learned lesson I want to create a sub-task, so that it can be solved by anyone in our organization. 
So if you fill in the jira form that there were 3 lessons to learn (meaning the user faced 3 problems in their project), I like to have 3 different sub-tasks created. Preferable, already filled with information from that form.

Is that possible?


I'm using ProForma Forms & Project automation for Jira

Hi @Sharon Freij 

So if I am reading this correctly, when the "lessons form" is created, you would like to create 3 different subtasks based upon the answers selected on the form. Is that correct?

Are you server or cloud?

It sounds like you are cloud as there are differences with what you can do.

If server and you have AFJ, you can copy the form directly into another issue and set up the subtask notification.


If cloud, then you would need to use linked jira fields copy the form contents.

I work with ProForma and if you want to work this through with me directly, you can post on support queue marked to my attention. 

Hope that helps.
