Create a story with a subtask
Move parent to different column
Try to move subtask to a different position in its column, seems to be stuck.
I would like to move a subtask to show priority the only way I have found is by brining the parent back and moving that which seems unwieldy.
adding for clarity:
In Progress col
I want to move subtaskOfTask3 to the top of the col
Columns on boards have nothing to do with priority, they are groups of status.
If you can't move an issue from one status to another (i.e. into another column on a board), then the workflow is set up to disallow it.
Have a look at the workflow for the sub-task type, and check what it allows from the current status. If the diagram says there is a transition from the current status into a status in the column you are trying to get it into, then there is a condition on the workflow blocking it.
@Sam Lyon, I want to reset here and restate what I think you are saying and them give my $0.02.
Assuming this is an accurate restatement...
The fact that you can do this when the Task is in the same column as the sub-tasks and not when the task is in a different column does seem a bit odd. However as others have noted, sub-tasks should not be ranked independent of the parent. Certainly I see value of ‘ordering’ subtasks under the parent but IMO you should never be able to ‘rank’ them independently of the parent. Example, the following should not be allowed:
In the above example the correct process would be to move T1 above T5.
Getting off my soap box and back to your issue and my recommendation - If having them in the same column allows you to achieve your goal you need to stick w/ that for now and you can open a suggestion with Atlassian if you want a different behavior.
