If it was more complex with "if this, then don't create" or "create different types based on data on the issue", I'd recommend Script Runner for complete freedom to write any logic you want, or JMWE or Bob Swift's add-ons for advanced cases while avoiding having to write code. But your case can use any of the "create issue on transition" add-ons in the marketplace.
