Hello @Ragavendran S 

This is one of the most straight forward rules to implement. So if you havent done this before, Instead of us giving you exact steps, its great time for you to do so.

  1. Start with rule where trigger = Issue created
  2. Then do If condition, issue fields conditions and choose issue type = Task
  3. Then do another if condition, JQL, give summary ~ "Create tasks for XXX" or whatever
  4. Then start creating tasks by new action, create issue, and choose project, task and fill in fields as needed.
  5. Rinse step 4 for other tasks

Give it a shot, share screenshots of your rule and audt log if you are stuck and we can help.

If you need assistance getting the value of XXX from the Summary in the Task that is triggering the rule and putting it into the Summary of the Tasks you are creating from the rule, I think setting the following as the Summary on the Tasks (using a smart value) should get you what you're looking for, assuming that the Task starts with "Create tasks for XXX".

{{issue.summary.substring(17)}} Analysis

{{issue.summary.substring(17)}} Test

{{issue.summary.substring(17)}} Sign Off
