Don't know the answer for that post function, but it can be done with the post function from Create on Transition Plugin for JIRA

Bob- this is perfect. I really appreciate the fact that you include the substitution variables in the interface.

I was doing some test today with that. You can have parent issue summary with the following script:

issue.summary = "Type whatever here... " + transientVars["issue"].summary
