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.

Because your administrators added it.  We can't tell you why they did it.  Your users must have asked for it.

Actually what is the purpose of this code. I mean for what is the functionality of this code ?

 

Er, it's stopping you creating subtasks if the issue is of a certain type and you are not in the right roles.
