Script runner: creating sub-tasks based on checkbox field

Hi guys, hope you are doing great.

Here's what i'm trying to do: I have an issue parent with a checkbox custom field. After creating the issue, I would like to automatically create as many sub-tasks as options are marked on the checkbox.

For example, let's suppose the options of the checkbox field are:

  • A
  • B
  • C
  • D

While creating the parent issue I check options B and D. Right in the create transition, via post-function, I would like to automatically create two sub-task, with summary "Subtask B" and "Subtask D" for example.

 

Any clues? I'm working on JIRA 6.0

 

Thank you in advance for your help.

Hi Jose,

 

In the script-runner post-function there is a built-in postfunction to create a sub-task based on a condition.

 

Thus you can add 2 post-functions one for each sub-task and in the built-in post-function for sub-task creation you can check whats the value of the checkbox and if the value of the checkbox is what you want only then the subtask would be created.

Here's how you can check the checkbox value, this snippet can be put in the "condition" code block of the built-in script to create subtask.

cfValues['Reset Type']*.value.contains("Citrix")

Thank you so much! It worked. smile

 

Best.

Hello @Jose Jimenez @Tarun Sapra ,

 

Working for server. Same code is not working in cloud.  Can you provide the code for JIRA cloud?

 

Thanks,

Swathi
