How to avoid Auto sub-task creation if subtask in parent with same summary already exists?

I have set up auto-sub task creation using post functions on a  transitions in our workflow. However,  it works fine in creating auto sub-task when i use that transition. But i don't want them to be recreated if this process has to be repeated. I am using scriptrunner built in script for auto-creating subtask on transition.

I want to create a condition for avoiding the creation for the post function feature 'create subtask' if a subtask with the same summary already exists.

Thanks in advance,

I got the Script here it is

I"ve added the below script into the create a sub-task post function code editor condition. You'd need to update 'manage onboarding' to be the relevant summary of the sub task that you don't want to re-create if the same summary exists. 

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor


def subtasks = issue.subTaskObjects

if(subtasks.find{it.summary == "Manage Onboarding"})


    return false




    return true
