How can I add a string before an issue name or key when creating sub-tasks?

I want to have 3 sub-tasks added when a new Story is created. So far, I tried with:

"UX - ".concat({{issue.parent.key}})
UX - {{issue.parent.key}}
FE - {{issue.parent.summary}}

The expected result is:

  • UX - PROJ-1234 (or UX - This is the parent summary)
  • BE - PROJ-1234 (or BE - This is the parent summary)
  • FE - PROJ-1234 (or FE - This is the parent summary)

(where PROJ-1234 is the parent id)

Hello @Jose Vazquez 

Try the following :

UX - ({{issue.key}})
UX - {{issue.key}}
FE - {{issue.summary}}

"Issue" is refering to the issue that you are just being created (so the parent of the subtask)

Hope this helps 

Thanks, that's what I ended up doing.

For my specific need:

UX - ({issue.key}}
FE - ({issue.key}}
BE - ({issue.key}}
