Sub-task is not getting created

sanjay November 3, 2020

Here is my Script with Jira version 8.11 and Script Runner Version 6.12


import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue

def project = ComponentAccessor.projectManager.getProjectByCurrentKey("HC")
def loggedInUser = ComponentAccessor.jiraAuthenticationContext.loggedInUser
def parentIssue = ComponentAccessor.issueManager.getIssueByCurrentKey("HC-1");
MutableIssue issue = ComponentAccessor.issueFactory.issue
issue.projectObject = project
issue.summary = "This Is Sub-Task"
issue.issueTypeId = 10006
issue.assignee = loggedInUser


But getting this error


ERROR [workflow.AbstractScriptWorkflowFunction]: Workflow script has failed on issue HC-7 for user 'sanjay'. View here: http://localhost:8080/secure/admin/workflows/ViewWorkflowTransition.jspa?workflowMode=live&workflowName=Software+Simplified+Workflow+for+Project+HC&descriptorTab=postfunctions&workflowTransition=1&highlight=4 java.lang.AssertionError: Errors: {reporter=The reporter specified is not a user.} Error Messages: [].

Hi @sanjay ,

If you are using the script runner add-on in your server instance, then in the post-function please do select the script runner in that we have an option called to create a sub-task. Once you select that option you may need to fill up a few options like subtasks issue type name, condition to create the subtask, fields to copy, etc to create a subtask in the transition. 

Please do check and let me know for any queries in it.

Hi @Mone Dileep Kumar 

I need to create the Sub-Task based on condition like 

  • On the parent ticket creation form, there will be a field (quantity) which will accept numbers.
  • Depending on the number entered in the field, number of child tickets are to be created automatically.
  • For example if I enter 5 in the number field, right after I hit create button on parent ticket, 5 sub tasks should get created.
  • Child tickets should have field values same as parent tickets.
  • All child tickets should be unassigned

Thats why I need custom script post function
