Create new issue based on custom field value selected during issue creation?


I have a custom field with multiple choices and I would like to automate the creation of 1 or more sub-tasks based on the selections the user will make while creating his new issue. Ex: Custom Field says select environments to test (1-DEV, 2-TEST, 3-STAGE, 4-PROD). User select 1 and 2 and creates his new issue. I would like to automatically spawn 2 new sub tasks attached to this new issue having titles SubTask1 - Test environment DEV, and SubTask2 - Test environment TEST

Is this possible using standard Jira functionality? If not, is it possible in any other way, example using the Dev tools? Also, does anyone know of a third party solution that does this?

No, not part of standard JIRA. You need a workflow post function like provided by Create on Transition Plugin for JIRA. Here are some other related references
