Contemporary Jira version display of header for Sub-Task columns on the parent issue's View

What happened to displaying headers for the subtask listing?

Per Altassian documentation the setting change to enable this feature is "(warning) this is not applicable for JIRA version 4.4 and above as the view_subtaskissues.jsp file no longer exist"

So since that release the discussion of setting of the jsp file is useless. That was at least 3 significant releases ago. If this was an obscure feature request it would be understandable that this capability was lost.....but that is clearly not the case. Personally I believe displaying headers should be the default behavior. When will we regain this feature?

This was never a JIRA feature, but a customization which fell outside the intent of the product. As such, it is unlikely that it will come back. If you feel this feature is necessary, then I recommend you file it as a feature request on This can then be prioritized by the dev team, and other customers can provide their feedback on the topic in 1 place.
