Issue Creation with a script/post function on a specific transition


Do you know if can be possible to be created automatically an issue (for example a Story) when Epic issue-type goes through "Analyzed" status with a script/post function?

It is needed to be implemented this on Jira Server.

Thank you !


Best regards,

It is possible with ScriptRunner (I see you included the Script tag in your post so you may have that app?). If so, I can share a bit about how I accomplish this.


Yes, we have installed Adaptavist ScriptRunner for JIRA, installed version: 6.15.0.

It would be great if you can provide me some steps.

Thank you !

So, there is a lot of extra code in my script, but here is the section where I actually create a new issue. Some imports are necessary. Check it out and let me know if you have any questions about it.

IssueService issueService = ComponentAccessor.getIssueService()
IssueInputParameters issueIP = issueService.newIssueInputParameters()
IssueService.CreateValidationResult newIssue
newIssue = issueService.validateCreate(jiraAdminUser, issueIP);
IssueService.IssueResult iResult = issueService.create(jiraAdminUser, newIssue);

Now it's working to create a Story automatically when the Epic goes to "Analyzed".

But the wrong part is that it always creates a Story when the transition is accessed(because it's a shared transition). 

Basically I need to be created only one "Story" on this shared transition.

Thank you !
