Creating repetitive issues might be time-consuming work, especially when done on a daily basis. This post function can be used for pre-configuring a set sub-tasks.
Each time the transition is executed, all needed sub-tasks will be created depending on the selected values in a checkbox field.
When to use this workflow post function and when to use an automation rule?
This use case is very useful, if repetitive issues have to be created in only one project or workflow. Then a post function is the easier way to go.
Add an Create issue post function to the desired workflow transition.
The Create issue transition might here the best choice, though. When added to the Create issue transition, the post function will be automatically executed each time an issue is created.
