Setting issue type for a subtask

I have to create a subtask with Issue type as Interview. Need help.

This is my code

def prjisstyp = issueTypeManager.getIssueTypesForProject(issue.getProjectObject()) as Collection<IssueType>

def myissue = prjisstyp.find{ == 'Interview'}

if (myissue && myissue.isSubTask())



log.warn("Issue Type: ${}");


Log shows error as

The script failed : javax.script.ScriptException: javax.script.ScriptException: com.atlassian.jira.exception.CreateException

how to print the list of all subtask issue type?

I don't know about groovy syntax, but the following java code might help you.

User user = ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext().getLoggedInUser();

Issue parentIssue={getting the parent issue object};

MutableIssue subtaskIssue=ComponentAccessor.getIssueFactory().getIssue();



subtaskIssue.setIssueTypeId("{id for your interview}");

subtaskIssue.setPriorityId(parentIssue.getPriorityObject().getId());// I'm assigning priority of parent issue here.



 Issue subTask = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager.createIssueObject(user, subtaskIssue);


catch(Exception e)

How do I print all the issue types available?



ComponentAccessor.getConstantsManager().getAllIssueTypeIds() ;

Thank you!! It helped.

glad to hear it helped.
