Disable new task / enable new subtask


I'm new in Jira and can't find good resolv for our problem.
We use team managed project and I'd like disable new task create for a role but I wish if they could create new subtask.
If I add "create issue" role permission they can create new task and subtask but if I refuse this role permission than disappear "create new sub task" button too.

Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

There is no way to do this - if someone can create issues in a project, then those can be of any type - issue or sub-task.

Oh, I'm sad... In turn it would be a great feature.
Thank you very much for fast help!

This is going to sound bad, because I am going to say the "not my fault" thing and not say anything about whether I think it is a good or bad way to go.

Atlassian has never implemented a way to restrict people to create different types of issues.  By project - absolutely, you can either create stuff in a project, or you can not.  But the issue type is not a level they've gone down to.

There are apps that can block it in the UI, and you can do (clumsy) things with validators, but "can't create issue" is done by project, not issue type.

It's not changed since 2004-ish, when I started using Jira, so I don't think it's under any consideration to implement.
