Ease issue(s) creation workflow with forms(& automation)

Hello community, 

nice to be part of the team!


I am currently setting up a project (Jira software) for a development team who work on separate initiatives. Each initiative comes with 5 phases. Our approach is to use the epic type for the initiative and story for the phases, sub-task represents the concrete tasks below that. 

This however implies that at least 3 issues have to be created when starting which depicts manual effort. 


My idea was :

  • Use a form which gets the most substantial information (5 fields?)
  • An automation combines this information to set-up a clean and consistent epic with all labels and namings according to a defined convention
  • Based on this form information, also create the first 2-5 stories below this epic automatically and name them accordingly for consistency reasons


My experience so far:

  • I tried using proforma lite but I was not able to combine information from multiple form fields to for example the labels
  • I did not get automation to run and the automations I could create have only been able to change issue status



Is there a possibility to do that? If yes, then how? Do I need any packages for this? Is there a possibility to do this with free packages only or is there one package that is easily capable of achieving this goal?



Thank you very much

Is there no package to achieve this?
