Creating subprocesses out of Issues

Dear Community,

is there a way to trigger subprocesses in Issues ?

It should work like this:

Employee A creates an Issue. The Issue is called "New User". This Issue creates 3 new subprocesses in different projekts: creating User, Checking created User etc.

Greets from Germany,

You might be able to achive this by automatically creating 3 child issues of "Sub-task" type when the issue is created (there are vaiours ways to do that - just google it - there are already a lot of topics about that in Then you can add validator/condition to allow closing the parent issue only if all subtasks are complete and also automatically close the parent issue when all subtasks are complete (again I think there are a lot of samples in the forum about that).
