Assigning all users in a group a subtask with automation

Hello everyone,

What I want to do is when a issue is completed, have an automation to create the same subtasks based on the amount of users in a group and have all the users in a group assigned this subtask. Is this possible to do with just the Jira automation, or do I have to download a plugin to do this?

Hi @GGries welcome to the Atlassian Community! 


Depends, you can have automation create a sub-task upon issue being transitioned to done/resolved and assign it to a particular user. 


What I don't get is why you want to create identical sub-tasks? Can you elaborate on that a bit further please?


Furthermore you can't assign a group to a single sub-task either, only a single assignee. 


Looking forward to hearing from you. 


Kind Regards, 


Hello Ash,

Thanks for your input. I will try to explain this the best way I can. We have a procedure that gets completed. Once that procedure gets completed, I would like everyone on our team which is about 25 users in a group and then 25 subtasks to appear, showing they understand that procedure, and comments and fixes they may add to the original ticket. The end result is that 25 subtasks appear and one of the users in the group of 25 has one of the 25 subtasks. If I add a 26th user to the group, then I want 26 subtasks without adding the rule manually.  I understand that something like the confluence runbook might be better for this but this is what needs to be done for now.
