I'd use an add-on to provide a "create sub-task on transition" function.  They're post-functions, blocks of code that run after a transition has been chosen.  There's quite a few add-ons that provide those functions, ranging from simple ones that just create the basics, through to scripting add-ons which allow you to write whatever code you want in there (so you can do clever things like read what the user has entered and create one sub-task for each component they've selected, or create a batch of them with different pre-determined assignees, and so-on)

Hi Nic, Is there another way to complete this task without using add-on?

 

There's no built-in post-functions to do it, but some of the add-ons that provide one are free.

 

Hi Nic,

Could you please let me know that Add-on names. So that i will check it in Test Environment once everything is good then i will do it in production environment.

Thanks in Advance!

Regards,

Hi Nic,

As requested please let me know some Add-on names so that first i will check it in Test Environment.

I'd usually do it with the Script Runner.  There are others in the marketplace - a search for "create subtask" should find them.
