Hello @Kumar 

Based on your requirement I suggest you to use the behaviour module of SR plugin which get's activated at the time of create issue screen popup

@Tarun Sapra  Thanks for your reply 

I tried the Behaviour script but its not working while its creating sub-task automatic

after creating when i click on Edit and Update the subtask then its working.




Hi @Tarun Sapra  I resolved it I did a small change in the script

issue.description = """ Description



Action""".replaceAll(/ /, '') 


This is the script i have modified and its working thanks for your help 




Hi, does anybody now how to add bullet points to the value? description is a rich text field, so there must be a way to include formatting elements.
