Is it possible to automatically create an issue (in project B) when I create an issue in project A?

Hi Steve,

This is not possible by default in JIRA, but you may try the plugin below:




You can do it using one of the scripting utilities plugin like script runner or jjupin, jss.. or develop you own plugin.
Look to this links its can help you and give you more ideas.

I used the Script runner plugin for similar task. On create transition, I add a post-function that creates another issue.

Here is the sample code.

def projectName = "Dev Tools"       // Name of project you want to create the issue in
projectMgr = ComponentManager.getInstance().getProjectManager()

def wasIndexing = ImportUtils.indexIssues
ImportUtils.indexIssues = true

issueObject = issueFactory.getIssue()
issueObject.setIssueTypeId("1") // normal subtask

// set subtask attributes

// Create subtask
Map params = new HashMap();
params.put("issue", issueObject);
Issue StreamReq = issueManager.createIssueObject(authenticationContext.getUser().getName(), params)
