Stop Creating child issues in Epic when it is already created.

AM I'm New Here Apr 21, 2021

I(newbie) have simple workflow which has Statuses ToDo --> In Progress --> Done. when an issuetype Epic (parent issue) is created, it creates 3 stories(child issues) (I used Create A Linked Issue (JSU) to create all the 3 stories automatically when the epic is created only when it is in In-progress transition state.

Scenario 1:
Now the epic is in In-progress state. If I go back to ToDo status and come back to In-Progress status it again creates 3 new stories. 
Q: If I go back to ToDo status and back to In-Progress it should not create 3 new stories, how can we achieve it?? Any suggestion on pre-condition or JQL query?

Scenario 2:
When the Epic is Done. All the 3 stories are done in Epic as well. 
Q: If we go back to ToDo status from Done, then it should not allow to create 3 stories again.

I also checked 
it doesn't help me in my scenario but it is similar.

Welcome to the community.  

Since you are using JSU you can add a Precondition: JQL (JSU) post function before the Create a Linked Issue (JSU) post function and ensure that the JSU is false before creating the issues.  If these additional issues should always be created I would just move them to the issue create transition since it only happens once and this would also elevate the issue.  This would be the easiest to maintain as well.

You can use the JQL precondition:

"Epic Link" = {issue.key}
Must not find issues


Then in the "Create Linked Issue (JSU)" post function set:

Precondition must be: True
