I think so, and I seriously hope so. I've emailed our JIRA admin to ask, but he's off for Christmas and not back till mid-Jan.

Unfortunately, you're right that JIRA OnDemand can't run that plugin. I find it amazing how few plugins OnDemand runs.

Cheers and Merry Christmas!
Rebecca

That's a nice trick. If the UI field is initially "no" and at some later date you change it to "yes," does the docs issue still get created automatically?

Probably irrelevant for me since we use JIRA OnDemand and it can't run most plugins.

If the software engineer says yes, JIRA automatically creates a Docs issue and links it to the software issue. That way you don't have to worry about the engineers remembering to make a Docs issue. This is done through a free JIRA plugin called Groovy Script Runner.
