JMWE Create Multiple SubTasks using Create Issues Post Function

Roman Treynker May 21, 2024

I apologize in advance as I believe I'm just missing something obvious.

We're building a New Hire Form. Once parent ticket is approved, on Transition via Post Function... using JMWE "Create / Clone Issue(s) Post Function" I was hoping to create multiple subtasks, with different Summaries (titles) for each one - example:

  • Email
  • Domain Account
  • MS Teams 

(ideally, it would be the name for that subtask + issue.getAsString("customfield_10512" - Full Name field from parent ticket... but I'll take what I can get). I want to avoid using automation and we purchased JMWE mainly for this purpose. We used to use "Create on Transition" addon, but that required us to have a separate for each subtask which is really messy and hard to make changes, when need to. Any help is greatly appreciated!! Thank you in advance!

Hi @Roman Treynker 

you can indeed achieve this using JMWE's Create / Clone Issue(s) Post Function. You need to select the "Multiple issue creation" option and for the Iterator script use:

["Email","Domain Account","MS Teams"]

 Then for the value of the "Summary" field, you can use this "Groovy Template" value:

$it - ${issue.getAsString("customfield_10512")} - ${issue.get("summary")}

There are some useful examples here:
