Quick change status of subtask in the new JIRA issue view

After improvements in issue view (, I don't see an option to quickly change status of subtask (when staying on parent story/task page). Previously, it was possible by click to three dots on the subtask line.

Any ideas who to do the same in the new interface? If it's not possible, how can I report it as a defect?Image 2018-08-28 at 11.31.38 PM.pngImage 2018-08-28 at 11.35.17 PM.png

Hi Alex,

Thank you for reporting this issue to us.
I've tested on a test instance and indeed there is no option to change the status of the sub-task directly from the ticket. It's necessary to open the task and change the status.
Based on your request, I've created a suggestion for our dev team to check and implement it in the future:


Please, vote and watch to receive updates about the feature.
If you have any other question, please let us know.


Thanks, Angelica. Voted and started watching.

You are always welcome Alex!
If you have any other question, please count on us.


Hey Angelica,

It's been 4 years since this thread started. Have you launched a solution to this? We are still not able to update the sub task status.
