JIRA: Automatically create subtasks in transition?

Is there any way for a JIRA workflow to automatically create subtasks during a transition?

When an issue transitions from into Status X, autocreate subtasks A, B, & C?

I just found https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/48062/create-task-at-a-particular-workflow-transition which appears to answer this question.

sadly it doesn't. I'm really keen to be able to create sub-task estimate tickets for split teams. otherwise these are manually created each time which is not efficient.

You can also try Issue Templates for JIRA. Main goal of this add-on is to provide templates for creating issues but it also supports creation of subtasks from templates on issue transition what is described in documentation.
