If you need to create right after issue is create I suggest using Script Runner Plugin and add post-function groovy-script.
Another way is to create web-item plugin with action that creates subtasks, but this one has to be triggered manually.

 import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue

 import com.atlassian.jira.util.ImportUtils

cfLic = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Number of Licenses")
Collection<User> users= (Collection) issue.getCustomFieldValue(cfLic);
if(users != null) { for(i in 0..users.size()-1) {

Object AssigneeValue = users.get(i).getName();
issueObject = issueFactory.getIssue()



issueObject.setSummary(issue.getSummary()) issueObject.setAssigneeId(AssigneeValue)
