Hi ,

You can use the Create on transition plugin . Its provides a postfunction for creating a subtask . You can add this postfunction on the Create transtion.

Exactly the same requirement is found in mentioned plugin.

But it is providing the extra functionalites also

I want only the specified requirement.How to do customization?

What extra functionalities is provided ? I dont think you will need customization , you dont use what you dont want :)

Why is that needed for creating sub-tasks?

Link type ids is what you get by going to http://yourserver/secure/admin/ViewLinkTypes.jspa

what is issueLinkTypeId and how can we get it?

Yes you're right?

For the given link I am getting

XSRF Security Token Missing

browser error

  1. Log in as a user with the JIRA Administratorsglobal permission.
  2. ChooseAdministration at the top right of your screen. Then choose System > Issue Features > Issue Linking(tab) to open the 'Issue Linking' page.

The link was to the same page.

Thanks Renjith, I got basic Idea about it

In the method call

createIssueLink(parentIssue.getId(), subIssueObject.getId(),xxxxx , user);

xxxx is issueTypeLinkId is a long type and how to get the type which is present in JIRA.

I guess this should been posted as a new question. I thought the orginal question here was about creating a sub-task.

Again Bharadwaj, new question. Before that try a google search :)

If I need to develop, the automatic creation of subtask issue when I create a Bug type issue.

How to approach?
