I'd like to assign a subtask to a group of issues. I looked at the Edit Issues function of the Bulk Action feature. However, subtasks aren't one of the options offered. Is there a way to assign a subtask in bulk or did I need to assign it to each issue separately?
I might be misreading this question, but I think you're looking for the ability to bulk-change the parent issue of batches of subtasks?
If so, then I'm afraid bulk-edit does not support this at all, there's no way to mass-change the parent issues.
Ah, I did misunderstand the question, sorry.
I'm afraid this is a non-starter as well. A child issue belongs to one single parent. You can't create a subtask with more than one parent (a parent can have many children though).
The best you can do is have the parent/child singleton link, and then use issue linking to link the child to the other issues you need it to relate to. You won't get any parent/child functionality out of that, but at least it will be visible. However, I'm afraid bulk-edit won't let you link en-masse either
