Features used to implement the example

Example: Create a sub-task for each user selected in a Multi-User Picker custom field

This is an example of creation of multiple issues based on seed strings using Create issues and sub-tasks post-function.

We want to automatically create as many sub-tasks as users are selected in a Multi-User Picker custom field called Approvers and assign them to a user in that field when a certain transition is executed in parent issue.

We use Create issues and sub-tasks post-function in a transition or the workflow of parent issue with the following configuration:

Once configured, transition will look like this:

Result screenshots post-function "Create issues and subtasks" - Create a subtask per user selected in User Picker

The workflow is shared between parent issue and sub-task, thus we are using Conditional execution with boolean expression %{00041} = null to avoid the post-function to be executed by sub-tasks.

Note that:

  • %{00041} is field code for "Parent's issue key"
