AW: Auto create multiple child tickets from one request

If you like to do this automatically, use a scip oncreate with option create tickets and a template that create the ticket in a queue you need. Look around at the wiki, there are many hints for approval creation, its the same only different ticket type.

Subject: [rt-users] Auto create multiple child tickets from one request

I’ve implemented “spawn child ticket” and that works well, but now I have a
requirement to automatically create multiple tickets from one request.
We mainly use RT internally and now we have a requirement for a “New
Employee” Ticket
Depending upon a multi-select custom field, child tickets would be created
so work can be done by various groups/people.
Install PC,
Set up Phone,
Create email account,
Set up various applications accounts, etc.

Has anyone done anything similar?

Any help would be appreciated.
