Is it possible to set up stories so that as soon as the story is created, it has 3 tasks associated with it?

Is it possible to set up stories so that as soon as the story is created, it has 3 tasks associated with it? We have the same three tasks for every story and I don't want to create those tasks every time I create a story. Please advise.

Thanks!

You have two choices.

Or

On demand does not allow custom plugins.

Hi Audry,

Currently there is no way to to create the story with the subtasks automatically. What I can recommend to remedy this would be to create a python script with your thrww subtasks defined that call to JIRA's REST API to create the tasks. Another option would be to create a GreaseMonkey extension in JAVA that would do the same thing.

Here are a couple of documents on JIRA's REST API for your reference:
