Create a subtask in parent issue (sibling subtask) when subtask is resolved

Hey, I am using the Script Post-Function: "Create a sub-task" of the Script Runner Plugin.

I can create Subtasks from the parent issue easily, but how would I create one if a sibling subtask is transitioned?

Thanks in advance.

edit:

I found the following lines in the "Create a sub-task" script, see whole script: http://goo.gl/3sQaKV

def String subtaskAction = params[FIELD_SUBTASK_ACTION]

        subtaskAction = subtaskAction?.replaceAll(/ .*/, "")

        String subtaskSummary = params[FIELD_SUBTASK_SUMMARY]

        if (issue.getIssueTypeObject().isSubTask()) {

            log.warn ("This issue ($issue) is already a sub-task... doing nothing.")

            return [:]

        }

So it already checks if the task itself is a subtask and does nothing if so. In this case I would like to set "issue" to the parent issue, something like issue = issue.getParentIssue(). How would this be possible?

Pretty much like you say. Using the script as a starting point, if it's a subtask, set the issue issue.getParent() or whatever it is.

Yeah, you can do it with script runner, or jira scripting suite, or a java plugin, or jjupin.


Okay, I made myself famiiar with groovy and script runner. I think I could modify the script to my needs.

But I dont know where to put the script so it appears in the Script Post-Function overview of the postfuntions in a workflow transition. So I can configure it, specify name of the subtask, etc, like the ones already setup there. Can you help me out there please? thanks in advance.
