As per the docs you should be able to get issue.getParent() to get the parent object. From this object you should be able to get the data from parent and add to the email content.

And this link also may be helpful. Do appropriate condition checks so that the template works for non sub-tasks items too.

Can you please help me with an example of the syntax I should use? I am trying to put custom fields from the parent issue into a subtask email and am not familiar with the language (I think it's JAVA)
