Auto-create and populate new issues and sub-tasks

Automatically create multiple issues and sub-tasks when a select issue transitions through a workflow. Dynamically add the appropriate assignees, watchers, labels, links, attachments, comments, and other field values.

Set up simple or advanced conditioning logic

Easily configure a variety of optional conditions using regex pattern matching and JQL queries that determine whether an issue or sub-task should be created based on field values from the original issue or parent issue.

Easy, code-free configuration

Customize field values, conditions & other parameters in the "Create Issue" or "Create Sub-task" post functions with a straightforward, form-based menu. No scripting required!

*This product was formerly a Bob Swift app.
