How can I show only sub tasks to related issue type?

I don't want to see all sub task types. How can I connect some subtask to some issue types?

So far as I know this can't be done OOTB. What we did was to disable the 'Sub-Tasks' modules in the Issue Operations system-plugin, and then (via our own plugin) added web-items to create buttons on the View Issue screen that would allow a user to raise a sub-task of a specific type.

<web-item key="addnewfeaturetesttask" name="New Feature Test Task" section="operations-top-level" weight="10">
        <label>Add Test Task</label>
        <context-provider class="com.ciboodle.jira.plugins.AddNewFeatureTestTaskLinkProvider" />
        <link linkId="addnewfeaturetesttask_link">/secure/CreateSubTaskIssue.jspa?parentIssueId=$issue.id&pid=$pid&issuetype=$issueTypeId</link>
        <condition class="com.ciboodle.jira.plugins.IssueAllowsSubTasks" />
    </web-item>

The class IssueAllowsSubTasks checks the type of the issue being viewed, as we only allow certain types of issue to have this type of sub-task; the AddNewFeatureTestTaskLinkProvider class sets up $pid and $issueTypeId for the link-generator.

The net result is that users cannot create sub-tasks except for via this link, and can then only create a sub-task of a specific type - in this case, 'New Feature Test Task'.

This way is not useful for us. Are there any different solution or any plugin for this problem?
