How to associate sub-tasks with different workflow

I have a business type project with a very complicated workflow for Tasks, but I want a simple one for the sub-tasks, for example To Do -> In Progress -> Done. How can I create a separate workflow for sub-tasks in my project? Couldn't find anything on the web. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

hey Marat, 


Basically you just need to add a new workflow to your workflow scheme.  If you don't already have one go to "Administration" > "Issues" > "Workflows" and create the new one. Then go to "Administration" > "Issues" > "Workflow Schemes" and modify the workflow scheme you've got for your project.


Any JIRA Administrator has the permissions to do this. The process is fairly straight forward.

Thanks a lot Kian. Was looking at the wrong place in documentation))
