We are using a Kanban board across two projects to prioritize tasks. It's working nicely, except for sub-tasks.
If a sub-task is in a different state than its parent task, the parent task shows greyed out on the board, and it's not possible to move either the sub-task or the parent task in relation to other issues to determine the Rank. We would like to move the parent task (with all the sub-tasks) in relation to other issues.
e.g. parent task (Task-5) is in state "In Progress" and sub-task (SubTask-1) is in state "Analysis". SubTask-1 will show in the "Analysis" column as a sub-task of Task-5 (as it should), but Task-5 cannot be moved in this column because it is not in the "Analysis" state. Task-5 can be moved in the "In Progress" column (as it should).
Is this expected behavior? We would like to rank the parent task in all columns it appears, to be able to rank the sub-tasks in relation to other issues with the same state.
Thank you for your answer.
We don't have a status validator set, but I don't think that would solve this issue. There are valid cases for a subtask to be in a different state than its parent issue. For instance, the parent can be "In Progress", while the subtask is "To Do" or "Done".
