I have a task XXX-100
This task has many subtasks as a part of the project.
A few of the sub-tasks involve tasks to be done in separate projects
So I have Subtask xxx-101, xxx-102, xxx-103
I want to add subtask yyy-200 and zzz-300 (yyy and zzz pertain to separate JIRA projects
I get the error that subtask have to exist within the same project and so I cannot convert those yyy and zzz tickets as subtasks under xxx-100 for tracking and workflow
Technically, the yyy and zzz tasks should not be xxx because they fall under a different areas of responsibilty (eg: xxx is Application Development, yyy is DataWarehous & zzz is Infrastructure)
Can we enable JIRA to allow tickets from separate projects to be subtasks under another project?
Short Answer: no
Longer Answer: no, but here's how we handle this: we create a subtask on xxx, make a copy of this task, move this copy into yyy and link them. This is not very elegant, but it works more or less.
Hope this helps
Subtasks should be in the same project. You can create another tasks in the different projects and link them together using JIRA's linking feature. Will that help?
You just need a good link name for this I guess!
