Create subtask for each label

I have a custom field in which multiple labels can be added.

I want to have a subtask created for each label, with the title of the subtask as "[ParentIssueTitle] - [ParentLabelText]"

How can I achieve this?

Best regards

How to create multiple issues and How to create multiple issues - advanced example show techniques for doing this. In your case you will need to use %original_labels_comma_separated% replacement variable in the multiple issue value field. The advanced example includes duplicate issue control techniques.

For the summary substitutions, use %original_summary% - %entry%.

there should be made custom development, to have possibility creating subtasks

Best approach would be to have a workflow transition for "create subtasks from labels" (probably only once in the workflow, or you could end up with thousands of duplicated subtasks)

Once you've got that, I'd write a plugin that provides a post-function that will iterate over the labels currently on the issue and create a subtask for each (or, if you have the script runner plugin, use that, as it saves you having to develop plugins)
