Hi @Viresh Kumar 

Without seeing the audit log details for the rule executions, I hypothesize a couple of possible causes:

  • Your rules create issues, but do not first check if those issues already exist with conditions.  Solution approach: add conditions.
  • Your rules have the "Allow Rule Trigger" option enabled, perhaps incorrectly, and are creating a looping situation.  Solution approach: investigate why that option is enabled, and either disable the option or re-engineer the rules to prevent looping.

Kind regards,

Hello, Good day. We don't have the screenshot from you yet, I believe the following condition will help. You can if the sub-task is already present, if there is no sub-task create one or will skip it.

As suggested by @Bill Sheboy you can add the condition to check if the sub-task already exists or not.
