Need some clarification on Validator

Can anyone please let me know why this Validator is used in workflow transition Opened --> Create state.

issue.issueTypeObject.name == 'Draft'||issue.issueTypeObject.name == 'Issue'||issue.issueTypeObject.name == 'Enhancement'||issue.issueTypeObject.name == 'Task'||((issue.issueTypeObject.name == 'Restricted IP')&& (isUserMemberOfRole('Restricted Members') || isUserMemberOfRole('Administrators')) )|| ((issue.issueTypeObject.name == 'Security IP')&& (isUserMemberOfRole('Security Members')|| isUserMemberOfRole('Administrators')))

When I remove the validator I am able to Create Sub-Task otherwise I am not able to create Sub-Task.

Please let me know why this Validator is used. This is very urgent.
