Team Field not editable in Sub-tasks


Hi everyone,
While working with the team field I discovered that it is not editable in sub-tasks items.
Is there a reason why this is not possible?

In addition, the field is blocked and I cannot make any modification regarding the context.
We are using Jira Cloud and the Advanced roadmap and the usage of the Team Field is helpful for filtering.

Suggestion or opinions are more than welcome.

A sub-task is a part of its parent issue, not a separate issue.  So if an issue "belongs" to a team, logically, any sub-tasks of it do as well, because they're a part of the issue.  So you can't edit the team.

Thank you. It's enough for our needs. 



Wouldn't it be a good feature to allow sub-tasks to assigned outside of the team that owns the parent?


A sub-task is entirely a part of its containing issue.  Why would you assign a different team to part of an item that needs to be done by the current team?
