The Bob Swift Create on Transition for JIRA add-on provides workflow transition post functions that can be configured to create issues or subtasks. Create can be conditioned on information from the original or parent issue. Multiple create on transition post functions can be used to create multiple issues. The create post function can also be associated with the create issue transition to automatically create issues or subtasks when an issue is created. This is a standard post function added and changed during workflow editing. Shares similar capabilities to CW which has update issues and other functions.
