Create subtasks on specific label with listener

Hi everybody,


I'm trying to use a listener for the Issue Created event to check if there's a specific label that requires the creation of several subtasks in that issue. I've used this script but absolutely nothing is happening when I create a new issue after adding and enabling the listener:

    createIssue(project,parent,"Sub-task","Monitor & Keyboard");
    createIssue(project,parent,"Sub-task","AD Nieuwe Gebruiker & Rechten");

Hi Morgan,


Replace "parent" from your calls to createIssue routine with "key". You want the new issues to be children of the current one.

If you would have used "parent", the parent of the current issue would have been searched (and it doesn't exists), so the subtasks would not be created.



Best Regards,
