Scriptrunner web fragments for creating subtask with default values

Hello,

Is it possible to open a Create Sub-Task screen from a web item button in Scriprunner?

Background:

We would like to have a button on an issue to create a subtask of a specific type.

As far as I can see only Create issue is supported, not create subtask.

 

Best regards

Filip

I've added a bit to the docn. It's not ideal but might be good enough for you.

You may wish to create a subtask of the current issue (or any other issue) at a particular stage.

We currently don’t have support via the UI for this (SRJIRA-2162). But you can do it with a raw XML fragment, with the caveat that the form will open in full-screen mode.

Reminder, pressing the Preview button generates the XML for any web fragment, which you can modify and submit via the raw xml module built-in script.

The XML to use is for example:

<web-item key='link-create-subtask' name='ScriptRunner generated web item - create-subtask' section='operations-operations' weight='1'>
    <label>Create Linked Subbie</label>
    <link linkId='link-create-constrained-subtask'>/jira/secure/CreateSubTaskIssue.jspa?parentIssueId=${issue.id}&amp;pid=${issue.projectObject.id}&amp;issuetype=10004</link>
</web-item>

 

Set the issue type ID of the subtask, and set the context path correctly, in the case of the example above it is /jira.

Thank you Jamie.

We tried it now.

It works, but the full-screen mode is not beautiful.

Do you think it will be possible to solve with a dialog like the built-in create-subtask? (if/when SRJIRA-2162 is implemented)

 

 

yeah that's the main task of that issue.

To make as a dialog like the built-in create-subtask, you need to add a class:

<styleClass>issueaction-create-subtask</styleClass>

So, add on the XML example by @JamieA, it becomes: 

<web-item key='link-create-subtask' name='ScriptRunner generated web item - create-subtask' section='operations-operations' weight='1'> <label>Create Linked Subbie</label>
<styleClass>issueaction-create-subtask</styleClass>
<link linkId=
'link-create-constrained-subtask'>/jira/secure/CreateSubTaskIssue.jspa?parentIssueId=${issue.id}&amp;pid=${issue.projectObject.id}&amp;issuetype=10004</link>
</web-item>

Hello,

You can create sub-tasks from the parent's screen by choosing More -> Create subtask

You can use the Behaviour plugin (part of Scriptrunner) to pre-populate it with values

 

Hello,

What our business requested is a specific button to create a sub-task of specific type.

Like "Create Approval Request" that brings up create sub-task screen with Issue Type set to "Approval Request"
