Create a task when closing story based on a resolution validation


I the following task: Automatically create an issue of type "Task" when closing a story.  The task created must automatically be linked to the closing story.  In addition: This task must only be created when the resolution of the story is set to Done or Resolved.

So, on scriptRunner I went to the option to Clones an issue, and links, set the Target project, Target Issue Type and Issue type link.  With these steps I managed to successfully create the "Task" when the story closes, but I am struggling with the last part of the problem: "Task to be created only when the resolution is "Done" or "Resolved"

When you created the post function, there is a condition field which you have to fill. If this condition returns true then the post function will fire, it false then the post function will not fire. 

You need to enter there the following line

issue.getResolution().getName() == "Done" || issue.getResolution().getName() == "Resolved"

This line will return true if resolution is Done or Resolved
