Description of a sub-task



we often use sub-task and create lists with tasks and sub-tasks.


My question is, is it possible to get this:


Task-1     New Website (Task)

Task-1/1    New Logo (Sub-Task)

Task-1/2   New Color (Sub-Task)

Task-1/3   nice Pictures (Sub-Task)

Task-2     Vita (Task)

Task-2/1    Name (Sub-Task)

Task-2/2   Adress (Sub-Task)

Task-2/3   Phone (Sub-Task)




Task-1     New Website (Task)

New Website / 1    New Logo (Sub-Task)

New Website / 2   New Color (Sub-Task)

New Website / 3   nice Pictures (Sub-Task)

Task-2     Vita (Task)

Vita / 1    Name (Sub-Task)

Vita / 2   Adress (Sub-Task)

Vita / 3   Phone (Sub-Task)


Thank you

Hi @Markus Semmelmann 

Do you mean get the description in the specified format via REST API or in some other page?

no - if i start an search in order to export the task in PDF i get this:

and i´m not able to sort them.

In the search query (JQL), have you tried adding an 'ORDER BY' clause to sort like this: "ORDER BY parent"

ok - then i got this:

how can i get:


Main Topic ONE

- Sub-Topic ONE

- Sub-Topic TWO

- Sub-Topic THREE

Main Topic TWO


any ideas?
