Yes it's possible, first clone the issue and then convert the cloned issue to sub-task.

Once it's converted to sub-task you can then link it to the original issue which would now be the parent.

Thx Tarun Sapra, but is there any easier way how to do that? This is too much steps that user have to do...

No, there isn't any other way, generally people use plugins like "Script Runner" , "Create Sub-task" which are paid, which create sub-tasks on workflow transitions only.

DId you manage to find any other way via any plugin, if not, would be nice if you could make my answer as accept. thanks.

Well i did not... There is probably no solution for that, except one that Matt Doar said.. But thx..

Possible but not a great idea because then you will have the same info in two places. Better to create a new subtask and selectively copy the key information to that subtask
