Assigning a Sub Task without opening is not working


I have a few projects. 

Behavior in first project:

- Create Subtask

- Possibility to assign in List

In the second project i can not assign the sub task from the list. I have to open it first.


Is there a setting for this?


Second Project:

Hi Markus - Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

PLC-57 has a different icon than the standard sub-task, and there is a blue bar next to the priority. What is different about that issue? How was it created? I am able to modify the assignee for regular sub-tasks. 


No, the icon changes when the mouse gets over it.



It is the same Sub task type. 

The only difference is the Project, the parent issue type and the workflow.

But i also tried the issue type and the workflow in the other project and it works there

That's very strange. Can you update it on PLC-56? Also, I don't see the green or blue bar to the left of the priority on mine. 

And if you open the sub-task itself, you are able to change the assignee? 

Yes, i am am able to change the assignee when i open the sub task

I would submit a support ticket to Atlassian. Please post back here with the resolution.
