Card layout: Add the parent link if subtask?


is it possible to add the link of the parent issue on the card of a sub-task in the active sprint? Can't find it under "card layout".

We use Swimlanes on Queries. In our "main" lane we only show the sub-tasks if there are any to a parent or the issue itself if there aren't any subtasks. This works well for us, but we can't click on the parent in this setting. We are using Script Runner for defining the Swimlanes but I can't get the link of the parent on the card (which would be our ideal setting).

Thanks for any hints

Hi José,


we resolved it with a little trick:

we use a Browser Plugin to add custom CSS styles and JavaScript. For example Styler for Chrome. With a little JavaScript you can get the link and display it. Then style it. This did the trickfor us.
