How Can I convert two or more tasks in sub-task?

Hello,

I know how I can convert one by one task in a sub-task. But could I do that for two or more tasks in one action?


Thanks.

Yes, you can convert multiple tasks into subtasks: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-13245

For doing so, perform a search > bulk change > Move Issues.

It is a little bit difficult to find, as logic seems to say that it should be categorized as an Edit Issues operation instead.

Hope it helps.

Lameck,

Unfortunately, not OTTB sad. I haven't tried scripting but I imagine it could be possible.

To have multiple issues converted to sub-task, you can use Bulk Operations. Please note that when converting multiple issues, all of them will share the same parent issue.

  1. Go to the issue navigator and query for the tasks you want to convert.
  2. Click Actions > Bulk change.
  3. Select "Move Issues.
  4. Finally, select the project, issue-type and parent. 

Step 1: Search for the tickets from issues -> search for issues

Step 2: Select search criteria

Step 3: After getting the desired tickets list, click on three dots at the right corner and select move

Step 4: In next step follow the instruction to convert ticket to sub task.
