Customize the way sub task look in Main Task


I have more than one sub task issue types in my main task. When i open my main i would be able to see all my sub tasks along with sub task issue type, can we customize the way that sub tasks display in main task?

Example: Open Main Task XX


1. Subtask1 Bug

2. subtask2 new Feature

Currently it displays the issue type logo, but i want to see the issue type name like Bug,New Feature etc..

Your help is appreciated.

Hello Govardan,

I think this should be possible using the same way as described in the documentation below:

You just need to do some modification to your velocity files.

I hope that helps. :)

Hi Govardan,

I think you are looking at how to customise how the sub-tasks look in the Issue View screen, rather than the Issue Navigator, is that right?

If it is, you may want to look at the Jira KB

Currently we are using JIRA 5.2.11 and i am looking for sub-task look in the issue view screen. When i click on my parent issue, i see sub tasks under my parent but i do not see sub task issue type name. Could you please help?
