add sub tasks ONLY on creation of certain Issue Types

I would like to create 4 sub tasks, different issue types ONLY when a Story card is created.  Do not see how to do this.  Seems the sub tasks will be creted whener an issue of any type is created.

You can do this very easy by using JJUPIN plugin.

All you have to do is to add  a postfunction which should look like this: 

if (issueType == "Story") { //or any other issue types you may want
    createIssue(project, key, "Sub-task", "summary for subtask1");
    createIssue(project, key, "Special-sub-task", "summary for subtask2");
    createIssue(project, key, "Sub-task-test", "summary for subtask3");
    createIssue(project, key, "Sub-task-0", "summary for subtask4");

I used createIssue routine, with these parameters: the project, the key of the parent issue, the issue type and the summary of the issue to be created.

Just keep in mind that the postfunction should be the last one in the list, so the issue could get created first.

You can find the documentation here. For more details don't hesitate to ask us.

That's all.


Hope this helps,
