We want to have an implementation where in we just create Epic and based on specific category mentioned in custom field, it has to create a set of User Stories and linked sub-tasks. We can use cloning, which is the option we are considering, however we want to explore if there can be a best efficient way to achieve our mentioned objective.
Hello @Omkar Rane
Welcome to Atlassian Community!
Per your description, it seems you are looking for a way to create a specific set of issues based on the value selected for a custom field of an Epic. Is that correct?
If that set of issues follows a common structure like a template, I believe that Automation for Jira Lite app can help you achieve this automatically, without needing to manually clone the issues:
As you can see in the screenshot above, you can easily create an automation rule that:
1 - Will trigger when you update the custom field on the Epic
2 - Will check which value as selected for the custom field
3 - Will create all the issues and sub-tasks you need based on the value of the custom field
4 - Optionally, you can set the fields you want with determined values and linking the issues as you need
P.S: The mentioned app has 300 free executions per month, so you will have costs if you have a lower number of executions per month.
Let us know if you have any questions.
