Converting issues to another issue type not working, option has changed to 'convert to sub task'

Initially we used to get an option of just 'Convert', wherein we could change the issue type to any of the standard issue types. Now this option is not there, and is changed to 'Convert to Sub Task' only. Now I want to convert my Bug to a Task but Jira is not allowing me to, it just allows me to convert it to a Sub Task.

This option is called Move and you need to have permissions for it in the project permission scheme. This permission is called Move Issues.

Thanks ! got that now.

Thanks @Alexey Matveev _Appfire_ This was super helpful and solved my question. For Jira cloud users:

On the issue go to:

  • 3 dots
  • "Move"
  • Change issue type from sub-task to task
