  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.
