Hi Vidyha,

as I told you last Friday, we use the "Workflow Tool Box Plugin" for creating subtasks with a workflow.

You do need add-ons to do this, there is nothing built into JIRA that creates sub-tasks.

There are plenty of options in the marketplace.  Bob Swift's issue creator, JMWE, Automation and Scriptrunner are quite powerful, sort of allowing you to code directly in the core of JIRA.  Others are a bit more "fixed", where they'd let you do the same thing repeatedly.

You could also write your own if it's a one off (A JIRA add-on written in Java).

A last option might be to do it from the outside, creating the sub-tasks over REST.
