I'm trying to apply a post function when importing Jira projects from CSV. The data appear to be well-formed, and everything imports. The post functions are set on the Create transition. I've tried applying both before and after each original issue is created (these are subtasks, btw). What am I missing here?
I think what you're missing is that post-functions don't run during import. The workflow is pretty much bypassed for CSV import.
Whatever you need to run during import, I'm afraid you probably need to run it after import. What you could do is hack the workflow slightly - have a new status of "imported", which has no transitions going into it, and transitions out to where you need. Put your post functions on those transitions from "imported". Do the import and then use bulk-edit to push the new issues through the workflow, and hence post-function.
