For every Epic that is created, I'd like to auto-create a list of subtasks to cover an implementation checklist. Example:
How can I do this?
This is done with adding a post-function to the create transition of the Epic workflow. I use ScriptRunner available on the Atlassian Market Place. In my instance my stories create a number of sub-tasks when each story is created (e.g., Assignments Sub-Task, Scrum Meeting Sub-Task, etc.). Additionally, we do not allow anyone to log time against Epics or Stories just subtasks.
Hope this helps!
There isn't a method to do this within the JIRA Cloud application. It is possible in JIRA Server edition through the use of the many third-party add-ons that exist. I would suggest this path that follows, although it will require development on your part or a consultant you hire –
If this is brainstormed and developed correctly, it can be lightweight and powerful. But again, there isn't an ability for this to happen in the core JIRA product at all.
As this is an older post, For anyone who comes across this, The subtask manager add-on (now avaliable in Cloud) may be of use to you for this scenario, it is a subtask generator that can be used to deploy a subset of subtasks quickly from a preconfigured template, Still a manual process but much quicker than creating sub-tasks one at a time as would be the current process:
Also the Developers of Script Runner (Adaptavist) are currently working on a cloud version of script runner, details on this can be found in the comment section of this feature request:

Just a brief update: Adaptavist are working on a ScirptRunner for JIRA Cloud version. It is still several months away but I just wanted to let you know it is being worked on. We'll keep you posted.
NOTE the Feature request is Closed out as "Won't Do", but this is because the request is speciffically for bundling of the plugin in cloud, not the development from Adaptavist as covered in the comments of the feature request. There is currently no information on an ETA
