Jira automation convert a task to a sub task and link it to a specific issue number

Is it possible in jira automation to convert a task to a sub task and linked it to a specifique task # ?  If so , how to do it ? 

1 answer

Convert to a subtask is basically a "move issue" operation. Due to various complexities around moving issues, most of the automation suites don't seem to support it. Its not exposed in the rest API for example.

The closest that people seem to come to is creating a new issue that is a subtask with the data from the original issue, the deleting the issue. But as you can imagine there is some complexity with this as well.

If I move the issue, I think I can do that, how can I link this issue to a specific issue # ? 


Manually via the web interface. Under the "more" menu

There is a convert to subtask option that will ask you what issue you want to be a subtask of.

As I said, there isn't automation for move or convert to subtask. Has to be done via the web interface
