How can I add a task to a story?
Here Földes László says it works now. See answer from February ‘18
i want to close the story ater the related tasks are done.
Adding a subtask should be as simple as:
Let me know if this isn't working for you or if I've misunderstood :)
As for the second part of your question (closing a story after the related tasks are done); that's a little more complex.
The idea is that you'll use a post function to transition the parent issue (on the close or completion of a sub task), with a "Linked Issues Status Validator" that checks if all the linked issues (i.e, sub tasks) are closed.
So, to put this all together:
Let me know how you go!
This doesn't answer the question. As the OP says, Földes *specifically states* that you can add tasks, as of February 2018.
We cannot comment in that thread (moderators locked it), but please can you explain how to create Tasks in Stories -- or can you confirm that Földes was making an incorrect statement, and this feature has NOT been added?
How can this obviously needed feature is not obviously available or cannot be found. Your UI sucks!!
Here's how to implement: Go to task: allow to add a task from link option on a story. Or, go to a story, allow add a task from link option. If that's hard, allow it from ... button/meatballs menu.
I put together an extension called Agile Docs which lets you do exactly this.
It allows you to create your epics, stories and tasks in a nested google doc and automatically creates relationships between them.
If you want to create a Task which automatically has a relationship with a parent Story, you create a dotpoint under the Story you want to link to like below:
In the above example, the task 'this is a task' belongs to the Story 'This is another story'.
You can check out the demo here.
Let me know what you think :)
I'm quite new to JIRA, so please bare with me.
The extension you developed looks great. I'm also trying to create a task as a child of a story, but show that relationship in 'Plan' which is part of portfolio - otherwise we have a long list of tasks that are merely 'linked issues' of story's, but without any visual representation. Would this extension carry through the code that will allow me to view that custom relationship in 'Plan', or is this a completely separate nested table?
Look forward to your response,.
Hi @Ben Thomson
Thanks for the kind words. Unfortunately Agile Docs no longer supports creating Tasks under Stories. Most people were using sub-tasks under their stories so that was the direction we decided to go. There are other add-ons I could recommend for this but I'm not sure if they'd carry through to the 'Plan' view in Portfolio. Sorry I couldn't be more helpful!
"Add Sub-task" in stories is not visible in any menu, button or whatever... so I don't understand what is the difference between a story and a simple task if I cannot add sub tasks to the story, so I end up creating a Epic that has tasks... what a disaster of UX, I only use Jira because companies are still too lazy to investigate alternatives.
