Different Key for Sub task



Is it possible to have a different key for SubTask?


Our prblem is Project key and subtask key are being used in the same sequence... for e.g.

Pr-1, Pr-2 and so on for issues under a project.

For Sub task it use the next available number... i.e. Pr-3

Is there a way or altrernative that I can generate my own key?



What I have tried so far with Automation

- Created a new rule

- When an issue is created (Condition)

- Then added a condition to search all subtask and order by (Custom field) : JQL

- How do I update the value to next key


Appreciate any help on these lines....

No, Jira allocates the key for each issue, you can't set it arbitrarily.
