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.
JIRA CLI is the best option for your use case - https://bobswift.atlassian.net/wiki/display/JCLI/JIRA+Command+Line+Interface. Here is a how to: https://bobswift.atlassian.net/wiki/display/JCLI/How+to+create+projects+or+sets+of+issues+based+on+a+template .
