I faced strange behavior of Jira.

I use Kanban board with stories in backlog. Some stories have sub-tasks already.

If I drag and drop story with sub-tasks (or right click -> send to sprint x), only story is being moved, sub-tasks stay in backlog.

Can I have sub-tasks firmly connected to a story, so that when I move story, I move subtasks as well?

You would need a plugin for it.

For example, you could use the Power Scripts plugin:

You could add the SIL post function for the parent task workflow, which is leading to the Done status, with a code like this:

string[] keys = subtasks(key);

for(string k in keys) {
   autotransition("Done Transition", k)
