Contact our support team if you have any questions.


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

Notice that in Create on Transition for Jira Cloud, all the features supported by Update on Transition for Jira are combined with Create on Transition for Jira making it easy for you to use all the post functions and conditional validator in one app.
