Is there a way I can automatically trigger multiple 'Issue' creation whenever a new 'Project' is created?

Is there a way I can trigger multiple 'Issue' creation whenever a new 'Project' is created?

For example if I create a new Project Called 'Training' it should trigger the creation of a few Main Tasks under it instantly. Something similar to the concept of having multiple Sub tasks getting created when a certain Main Task type is created, but this should happen with a few Main Tasks as soon as a new Project is initialized/gets added.

Please let me know if I should provide a more detailed example.

HI,

This can be done, if you want proof whether it can be done, try installing jira 5.2 it will create a new project and it will create few issues for you under the project.

I will prefer doing this with REST using Java or perl or python. I am working in REST using perl. Try creation of a project and once you create the project, create few issues under the project.The below link will show how to use rest,

Hope this helps.
