I have hundreds of tasks that need to be entered in Jira, and they all require the exact same three sub-tasks. Is there a more efficient way to do this than create task, create sub-task 1, create sub-task 2, create sub-task 3, repeat until my eyes-bleed? Thanks.
I will use JIRACLI and create a shell script to feed the data.
jira --action createIssue --project "zwork" --type "1" --summary "This is content"
jira --action createIssue --project "ZFIELDS" --type "Sub-task" --summary "This is content." --parent "ZFIELDS-1"
Take a look at the JIRA REST API doc (https://docs.atlassian.com/jira/REST/latest/). Basically, you will need a script that can do the basic REST calls, like a shell script (curl) or groovy script. That is your best bet. Otherwise, ask your team to purchase the JIRACLI plugins and such.
