Create issues form workflow transitions

I'm looking a way to make another issues from workflow transitions. Copy some fileds, create issues in other project and link them. Is there any opportunity to choose destination project and issue type on workflow transition.
I check a plugin "create on transitions' but i don't see possibility to choose destination project and issue type on transitions, only in configuration.


Thanks for Your help.

Hi Krzysztof,

Have you tried to use plugin Issue template? You need to add template issue and you can use it to autocomplete issue. There is also a postfunction, which create new issue. In configuration you can choose destination project, issue type and template issue. You can even create issue with subtasks.

Here you can find documentation.

I hope I've helped you.


Have a look at the script runner plugin (assuming you are using JIRA Server). The plugin has a collection of built-in scripts which you can use, specifically clone and issue and links is worth looking at. You can also define your own script if you need more customization.



The Create Issue post function from Create on Transition for JIRA can be configured to set the project and issue type from values from the issue being transitioned including those changed on the transition screen. See Substitution variables for more information.
