This article explains how to create multiple sub-tasks from JQL filter results using the Jira Command Line Interface (CLI) app.
Create a filter called Demo with the JQL query as shown:
project = "Support Request" AND issuetype = Task AND resolution is EMPTY
- Create a text file (named as subtasks.txt in this example) with createIssue action, and specify the summary, parent, and type parameters as shown:
Combine the runFromIssueList and run actions, Demo filter, and, the text file to create multiple sub-tasks from the JQL results. This example works because the text file contains the createIssue action with the relevant parameters.
--action runFromIssueList --jql "filter = Demo" --common "--action run --file "subtasks.txt" "
It is recommended to test this scenario in a test environment or run the action with the --simulate parameter to verify the behavior before deploying.
