Convert sub task to issue in transition

Can a sub-task under an issue be converted to an issue via a transition? The sub task and the main issues have the same fields so there are no mapping issues. Ideally I'd like the user to be able to change the status of the subtask to done and it moves the subtask to its own issue in the project and set its status.

Hello Dennish,

Thank you for reaching out.

It's not possible to automatically change the issue type of any issues upon a transition using only JIRA functionality. Although we have already requested it before, the feature was not implemented due to the low number of request about it:

Change issueType programatically

That being said, there are some apps that provide you with this functionality, like the Jira Misc Workflow Extensions. which provide you with the Set field value post function to change the issue type.

You can check for other plugins with this functionality in our marketplace:

Let me know if this suggestion is applicable to you.
