Logging a defect against a story

Is it possible to log a defect against a story just like how sub-tasks can be created under a story?

Currently a defect is an issue type, the team has to create a defect then link it to the story.

Hi @Phionah Kyasiimire  - Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

Actually, a sub-task is just an issue type as well. AND, your Defect issue type is probably already created as a sub-task type of issue type and not a standard issue type. If that is the case, then you can create the Defect just like you do a sub-task. 


Hi @John Funk  


My story issue type doesn't have an option to create a defect against it

It only has  sub-task, I tried to see if I can change the issue type of the sub-task into a defect hen creating it and it doesn't bring up the option


Trying to paste a screenshot but it's not pasting

You might need to add the Defect issue type to the Issue Type Scheme being used by that project.
