Automatically create a new Task when story is done script Runner

Hi All,

I have the following issue types:

  • Story
  • Task

The story and the Task have two different workflows.  When the story transitions to "Done" I would like the following to happen:

  • Automatically create an Issue of Type "Task"
  • Link the newly Created Issue type to the Story
  • Populate the summary of the new Task with the Story Issue ID

This is proving to be very challenging for me, please assist.  I am using script Runner

Did you try the "Clone issue and link" post function by script runner ?

Hi Mizan,

I'm new to groovy and scriptrunner. I'm not sure how to do it

On the "Done" transition of your Story workflow add a post function

select Script post function then Add

select Clone issues and links

select target issue type as Task

In additional actions enter the below code

issue.summary = sourceIssue.key+': ' + sourceIssue.summary

select issue type link direction as relates to (first one) (You can create your own link types as well)

Add then publish workflow

Test it out by transitioning "Done" of the story

Let me know how it goes 

You are the greatest :)

Happy to help :) thank you

Hi Mizan,

Many thanks for your advice :)

Unfortunately, the code doesn't work for me, could you please advice what could be the reason? - thanks, Platon


Also, for all newbies like me, who will read this article:

To see the "Script post function"  in Post Function, you need to set up plugin:

ScriptRunner - $5 per month.

Thanks, Platon
