JMWE Post Function Creates Issue - but errors on subtask creation


I am using the JIRA Cloud instance.

I have been using JMWE Post Functions to Create a New Issue on another projects board - and have been copying over most of the fields details with no issues (Summary, Description, Attachment, Reporter, etc) and using 'Copy value from current issue'.

Recently, we've started to also want to copy the subtasks and their details from the parent issue on project A --> and attach them the newly created issue on project B.

But i am getting an error message on the subtask creation and cannot seem to figure out how to correct it.

Error Message: 

Field subtasks is not editable on issue

There are no Issue Security levels preventing a subtask from being editable.  I don't know what else to check or where to look. 

Any help or assistance would be greatly appreciated! Until this is figured out, users are having to re-enter subtasks manually which is not an efficient use of their time.

Thank you in advance for any suggestions that may assist me & my organization!
