Create Issue hierarchy Epic - Story - Subtask Edited

I need to automate the following structure Epic - Story - Subtask:


If Epic is created 

then > Create 4 Stories under that Epic

then >> Create 4 Sub-tasks under each of the Stories


I successfully did 1st part, with Automation plugin

but subtask creation does not work


Even if I create a new Rule, it does not create sub-tasks under my stories automatically created under Epic.


It only works when I create a new story manually.

Hope that helps!
