How can I add a "Create SubTask" button on a view issue screen?

NTT Europe Mar 25, 2014

I am looking for a way to add a button to the view issue screen that opens the create subtask widget.

Is there any simple way?

Many thanks

If you create a button which calls /jira/secure/CreateSubTaskIssue!default.jspa?parentIssueId=>Your parent Issue<, the create dialog should open

Hi,

Indeed, the link is perfect, but I am wondering how to add a button.

Many thanks!

In this case i'm not sure about any easier ways, but you could create a Web Panel Plugin Module with the location set to "atl.jira.view.issue.left.context". This would provide you with a new panel in the issue details view, which you could either use as location for your button or as a way of injecting some Javascript, which could place a button somewhere next to the other buttons in the upper area of the page.
