Hi @Ganesh ,

There are several options.

If you have access to the Scriptrunner app or the Jira Workflow Toolbox app, you can include a postfunction in your workflow

  • Create a sub-task [ScriptRunner]
  • Create issue by JWT

You can also create a rule with automation for jira.

@Marco Brundel  Much appreciated for the quick response!!

I've tried with "Create a sub-task [ScriptRunner]", which is working absolutely fine!!

here workflow is associated with 20 other projects, do i need make the diverge for my project or is there any script or code can i use to make this happen without diverging!!

Please assist!!! Thanks!!

Hi @Ganesh ,

In the condition of the postfunction you can put 
issue.projectObject.key == 'XYZ'
