Create project template with predefined subtasks

Hi, is there any way to create a project template with predefined subtasks. We build many websites and have the same set of subtasks for every project and it would be great to be able to create a new project with all the subtasks already set up.

Like Nic said, you can use ScriptRunner for JIRA Cloud to create issues on project creation using a Script Listener. See our example code for more details:

Not on Cloud I'm afraid.  You'd need to write a new project template add-on, but you can't install them on Cloud.

Best I can do is that I think (but have not tried) Scriptrunner can create new issues in a postfunction, so you could write one that did that, with code that says "if issue key is not <project>-1, exit", then the first issue create could batch-create them.
