How to get the parent issue in my subtask issue function?

Issue currentIssue = (Issue) transientVars.get("issue");

Thanks Prasad,

I've written the following code

protected void

createSubTask(Map<String, Object> transientVariables, Map<String, String> args)

{

Issue originalIssue = (Issue)transientVariables.get(

"issue");

Issue parentIssue = originalIssue;

parentIssue =

this.issueManager.getIssueObject(originalIssue.getId());

MutableIssue issueObject =

this.issueFactory.getIssue();

issueObject.setIssueTypeObject(

this.constantsManager.getIssueTypeObject((String)args.get("field.subIssueTypeId")));

issueObject.setPriorityId(

this.constantsManager.getPriorityObject((String)args.get("field.subIssuePriorityId")).getId());

//issueObject.setSummary(replaceHelper.findReplace((String)args.get("field.subIssueSummary"), parentIssue, originalIssue, transientVariables));

Map params =

new HashMap();

params.put(

"issue", issueObject);

try

{

User user = ComponentManager.getInstance().getJiraAuthenticationContext().getLoggedInUser();

Issue subTask =

this.issueManager

.createIssueObject(user, params);

this.subTaskManager

.createSubTaskIssueLink(parentIssue, subTask, user);

ImportUtils.setIndexIssues(

true);

ComponentManager.getInstance().getIndexManager().reIndex(subTask);

}

catch

(Exception e)

{

log.error("Unexpected exception"

, e);

}

ImportUtils.setIndexIssues(

false

);

}

It is creating the issue but not creating the subtask issue returning //Create Issue:null//

error

Try using the Create On Transition Plugin. You can use the post-function to create a subtask. Also go through this documentation

Hope this helps!

Or use script runner, that will make life easier so that you need not write a plugin. The post function automatically defines an 'issue' object and you can use it.

I would go with Script Runner too. Groovy scripts are quite neat.

Create a separate workflow for bug issuetype and apply post function provided by Create on transition plugin as said by Naren on the crete transition of this workflow.
