Create generic sub-tasks for already created jiras


I have around 200 existing jiras in the project. It has been decided that each JIRA will contain 3 generic sub-tasks. Is there a way I could create these 3 sub-tasks for the 200 jiras with a script?

Thanks in advance

JIRA Command Line Interface (CLI) makes it easy to automate tasks like this. If you have a JQL query that identifies the 200 issues that you need to create subtasks for then, it would be something like the following:

jira --action runFromIssueList --jql "..." --common "--action createIssue --parent @issue@ --type Sub-task --summary \"...\"  "

Run that for each of the 3 subtasks you want to create.

Thank you for the answer.
