Hello @Mahesh Kallepalli

Thank you for reaching out.

Per your description, I understand you would like to create two automation rules:

1 - When an issue is created, add new sub-tasks to it depending on the value selected to a custom field in the original issue.

2 - When that parent issue is transitioned, all the sub-tasks must also be transitioned, keeping the same status as the parent

I believe those automation rules can not be achieved by Jira itself, however, there are some apps that can help you achieve those goals, Like Automation for Jira.

In fact, the app mentioned above provide you with the exact instructions to achieve your need in both links below:

1 - Add sub-tasks on Issue Creation 

Following the instructions In the link above, you'll just need to create an extra "IF" condition to check your Custom field value and then select which sub-tasks must be created.

2 - How to keep sub tasks and parents in sync in Jira
