  I would use when an issue is created or issue is updated as your trigger.  Then for the condition use JQL to define the issue type.  The JQL would be issuetype = "Story" where Story is the issue type name.  Then you can add your action to create a subtask.

Tap "Add component", then select  Issue fields condition and there you are able to select the issue type for the automation.

I do not see this option at all. Can you provide some more information? I have not found any way to select an issue type for an automation but it would make my life a lot easier if I could!

On the left, where you have the flow (When->Then), you have an option below to Add Component. Create a "If: New Condition" and move it up after the When item.


Use Issue Field Condition
