I am not quite sure what you are looking for as a "solution".

Subtasks are part of a story (or story-level issue), so they can't be moved into sprints separately - they move with their parent issue.  Kanban by definition doesn't have sprints, so yes, that second line is correct.

I'm looking for a solution for:

We are a Kanban team, and we are planning our work in 2 weeks window. So the sprints feature is very useful for us. 

As Kanban team, we work a lot with "Subtasks", so in order to have it visible, we need to have a Kanban board. BUT.... with Kanban board we do not have the "Sprint" feature enabled.

So, the solution to have the  "sprint" feature enabled is to define our board as Scrum.... hum... But now the "Subtasks" are not visible!!


So what can we do? All you can evoque all "theories" about this, but this planing mode cocktail is working very weell for us, JIRA is not helping with this limitation

That does not really explain what you are looking for a "solution" for.

If you are doing Kanban, each issue you have is something that goes on the board and "backlog" (although that's a little contrived - "pure" Kanban simply has a list of things that need doing).

If you are doing Scrum with sprints, your planning and commitment all revolves around Stories (and issues at the same level as Stories).  The backlog lets you plan what you need to, and ignores irrelevancies like subtasks.

So, I'm still not sure what you're looking for a "solution" to?
