Creating 20 subtasks with same summary but 1 value is changed


I am using the "Create on Transition Plugin for JIRA".

I want to create 20 subtasks for 1 parent. The subtasks will contain the same Summary but 1 change on each summary.

For example:

The parent Summary is: "Testing the applications"

and all the 20 subtasks to this Parent will have the title:

"Testing the applications - Application1"

"Testing the applications - Application2"


"Testing the applications - Application20"

I assume I need to start the Summary with %parent_summary%

but how to I pass for each subtask a different application name?

You have the right idea. Set summary to: %parent_summary% - %entry%

and configure the Create multiple issues field with

Application1,Application2,Application3, ... ,Application20

%entry% gets replaced with each value from the comma separated list of values as each issue is created. References are:
