I do not know if anything is getting created when the contract gets uploaded.

Does this sentence warrant a comma after "when"?

If you put the clause "when the contract gets uploaded" at the beginning of the sentence, then you would put a comma after the clause. –  Daniel Sep 15 '10 at 18:38

No.

A comma is typically used to separate sub-clauses or items in a list. It is definitely not used after the word "when" in a situation like this.
