How to inerhit component & assignee in subtask

Hi all,

Is there a possibility to inherit component and assignee when you create subtasks? How would that be possible?

When we create subtasks the assignee is the admin and the components is "none" despite the parent task having a component?

Many thanks for any help and suggestions!

Best regards,

component in ("Risk assessment", "Automated efficiency") 

Are Risk assessment and Automated efficenty project names or are they project keys?
