How to create sub tasks automatically on parent issue creation?

Hello, my requirement is that I want to create sub tasks automatically and assign automatically to the selected users in multi user selection. So how can I achieve this. Actually my requirement is I want to divide the expenditure amount among users. So I took the "Paid Amount" text field and "Shared Among" multi user selection field. So suppose 600 is entered  in  "Paid Amount" so creating on parent issue for expenditure of 600 and 3 sub tasks for collecting 200 from 3 respective users.

So, how can I achieve this. Thank you in advance

There are a few add-ons that will provide you with a "create sub-task on issue create" function, but it sounds to me like you probably need one of the more flexible ones as you have some logic to do - not just a fixed "create X subtask(s)".  I'd use the script-runner to do this.

There's now a very easy to automatically create sub-tasks with Automation for JIRA!

You can easily create sub-tasks with our 'create sub-tasks' action:

For a full list of available conditions and actions see: http://codebarrel.io/available-rule-components/

We also have a number of conditions you could use to check the value of the paid amount field.

Hi,

I hope I've helped you.

How to create multiple issues - advanced example shows an example that will create multiple issues dependent on the selections for a multiple selection field including support to prevent duplicate issue creation. This uses the Create Issue post function from Create on Transition for JIRA.

Hi, 

You can use this add-on that I created for this. Automates creation of common issues and sub tasks.
