We have common sub-tasks for many of our user stories.

For example

  1. Write PHPUnit Test suite,
  2. Executing PHPUnit Test suite,
  3. Create API Documentation,
  4. Code Review,
  5. Write Test case,
  6. Execute Test Case etc.

Today, the Scrum Master creates these sub-tasks manually for each user stories and This takes a lot of time.

Could you please suggest how we can automate it ?  like import sub-task according to User-story  OR any other suggestions ?

Have a look at https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/17892185 and JIRA Suite Utilities. You could also do this over REST API and simple shell script where the user only inputs the issue key/list of issues.

Script Runner plugin is also a alternative.

Good luck!

Our Structure add-on with the Testy extension could help remove a lot of the clutter, reduce the need to create so many issues altogether and make it easier to see the readiness of your stories.

Many of those subtasks could be represented as a Testy checklist column, where you would just set a custom status like 'done' or 'ready'. You would see those statuses rolled up to the story for immediate visibility.

You could also use it for testing...
