How to write a REST API program to create a Multiple Sub-tasks for an Issue? Edited

Can we use " for loop" in REST API program, to get Multiple Sub-tasks for an Issue ?

Below code i have used for this

REST API code:


"key": "TEST"
"key": "TEST-10"
for ( int i=1; i <=3; i++)
       "summary": "Subtask-TEST10",
       "description": "Subtask of TEST-10",
             "id": "10601"


For executing I used curl command:

curl -D- -u admin:admin -X POST --data "@MutlipleSubtask.txt" -H "Content-Type: application/json" http://localhost:8081/rest/api/2/issue/


Could someone help me with it?

And also is there any other way to do it in RESTAPI?

Thanks in Advance
