How can I let JIRA automatically create predefined sub-tasks after some end user raise a ticket in specific issue type and/or a component?

If it couldn't work in JIRA OnDemand, does it work in JIRA Enterprise and how?

Thanks.

you replied at light speed. :-) let me take a look.

thx a lot for the useful comment

Hi Bob,

I failed to find step 5 Add Create sub-task on transition post function
in JIRA On-Premise 5.2.8 as the URL. Any ideas?

It is a post function that ships with Create on Transition Plugin for JIRA and that is why it can only be installed with download version.

Thank you Bob. Will give it a try once available.

Thanks again. It helps.

Also see create subtask function in script runner plugin.

Thanks Jamie. Will try it soon.

Jamie,

Thanks again. It works well.

Here is a step-by-step visual guide on how to configure a Jira Workflow to create an issue with several sub-tasks automatically - http://isolasoftware.it/2014/01/08/create-an-issue-in-jira-with-predefined-sub-tasks/

This is done without buying add-ons.

Giuliio. A bit stumped by your comment "this is done without buying add-ons." when one of the steps is to install Script Runner.

By following the step, sub-tasks will created automatically. However, all these sub-tasks are in Unassigned state. How to pre-assign the sub-task?

Thanks Giulio, we already use Script Runner so your page was very useful.

This only works for the server version, not on cloud. Any way to do this in the hosted version?
