How do I get useTFS to sync sub-tasks of stories, bugs and tasks?

Based on this issue,, sub-tasks should sync just fine. But as I cannot find information about this in the wiki,, I am uncertain how I set this up to work properly for bi-directional sync?!

Yes, somehow % sign was urlencoded when I did copy paste :)

@Andrzej, I still have some issues on this one. And the documentation is not that helpful:

- On the work item sync. config tool, there is a checkbox for "Try to sync parent/child..." Should this one be ticked off?

- Secondly, with this setting not used, TFS does not create any links for parent/sub-issues. This is quite frustrating.

Any idea?

I have managed to get a sync on this now by specifying that Tasks in TFS <> Technical Tasks in Jira. This is not optimal however, so I will try and see if scripting will enable me to differentiate a Task on sub-level from a Task on parent-level.
