Built-in subtask script: include parent summary in subtask summary

When using the "Create Subtask" script in a post-function, is there a way to use the parent task's summary in the new task's summary?

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
