Create a JIRA ticket
Populate it with a checklist that you want to re-use
Save the JIRA ticket. That will be your template
Once you want to create a new issue with the same checklist - simply clone the template ticket
Checklists will be copied to the new ticket
Use external storage for all templates that you want to use
Run the script that pushes checklists to new items
If you have ScriptRunner add-on installed on your JIRA instance - set up it in a way that when you change an Issue Type - "Checklists" custom field's content is automatically pre-populated to the value you set up. E.g.: "definition of done", "acceptance criteria" and so on.
And that's one of the greatest benefits of Smart Checklist: it can be easily transferred and shared between teammates regardless of the channel!
Copy/paste checklist from Email or Slack/Skype note or any other communication channel to your JIRA issue.
