Automatically create a set of tasks and subtasks from a form.

I would like to create a form where a user can add information. From that form I need to create one or several tasks and subtasks including the information added. The tasks and subtasks shall then be assigened to different persons.

The tasks and subtasks are standard for my company and it is like cloning a tasks and its subtask and updating the information in them.

Can anyone recommend  plugins and/or an apporach to doing it?

How about creating a simple web form on some server you own and using JIRA's REST API to create new issues and push information from the form submissions?  Here's a link to the API documentation:

Hope this helps,
