The Background: Under a single parent issue, we currently have a single "track" of subtasks that automatically occur sequentially (ex: closing "SubTask1" Auto Creates "SubTask2", close that and it Auto creates "SubTask3...") As each subtask closes it auto transitions the Parent Status (which is what actually triggers the creation of the next subtask in the sequence). This works Great
The Goal: We have 2-3 "tracks" of subtasks that need to occur simultaneously under a single parent Issue. So regardless of whats happening with SubTask 1,2,3 (track a) - SubTasks A,B,C (track b) needs to also be created automatically (ex: closing "SubTaskA" Auto Creates "SubTaskB", close that and it Auto creates "SubTaskC...").
The Problem: Currently Subtasks 1,2,3 are being auto created during a transition of the Parent Status. But since Subtask A,B,C can't also update the Parent status (since it must occur independently of 1,2,3) I need SubTaskB to be created under the parent as part of the 'close' post function on the SubTaskA Workflow.
Note: I'm currently using a combination of the Script Runner and MISC JIRA Workflow plugins.
I Found that the Bob Swift Plugin "Create on Transition" Works very well. It lets you assign a post function to a subtask workflow and that post function lets you create another subtask off of the parent when the original subtask is transitioned. It solved my issue.
