How do I make subtask due dates visible from the parent issue view ?

How do I set subtask due dates to appear while viewing the parent issue? Seems like a pretty straightforward need but the solution involves creating a custom field?

Surely there's an easier way!

Hi Atlassian, any word on this? thanks.

According to the page pinpoint by Jobin, Advanced Settings seems to be not available for configurable on request. Check out the JIRA section in the page.

I quoted it just in case you missed it:

General Configuration options are available in JIRA OnDemand but Advanced Settings are not. External user management is also not available.

However, you can try out your luck and get a better assistance from the OnDemand Support team by raise a issue at

Hi there,

There is a documentation on this:

But for on demand instance, you might need to contact the support team to assist you from achieving that. Log a case on JST project and they will get to you soonest possible.

Hope this helps, cheers :)

Thanks but I'm unable to access the Advanced Settings page to edit the value of the jira.table.cols.subtasks property. I am the administrator for our OnDemand JIRA instance. Is there some permissions configuration I need to have to get access to the Advanced Settings page? Thanks.

Well, ok. So is there no way to make sub-task due dates visible in parent issues in our instance of OnDemand?
