Can I change sub-task parent using REST?

Scenario, Subtask SCRUM-1 has issue SCRUM-2 as parent. I want to change the parent to SCRUM-3.

REST: api/2/issue/SCRUM-1 (PUT)
"fields": {
  "key": "SCRUM-3"

Result is null, SCRUM-1 parent doesn't change, still pointing to SCRUM-2.

Also tried the 'update/set' version of the body but no luck

I'm testing it using the rest browser, atlas-sdk running JIRA version 6.4-OD-04-006. 

Looks more like a bug but I prefer to ask before raising an issue in JIRA.

This is not supported through JIRA REST yet. You can not change parent of any sub-task using REST api.

Is this still the case?

Same question. Is it supported now?

Does the latest API allow the parent of sub-task to be changed?
