Is it possible for sub-tasks to have special statuses?

I would like sub-tasks to have statuses of Not Started, In Progress and Complete. Is this possible?

I know issue status flow with the statuses of the board but I would like to have special statues assigned specifically to sub-tasks.

You may create new separate workflow for subtask with custom statuses

and look for "workflow schemes"

A workflow-scheme says "for issue type Task, use workflow X, for issue type Subtask, use workflow Y 


Thanks for the reply.

I created the workflow for the subtask with custom statuses and workflow scheme for subtask but I’m not certain where to apply it to my default workflow. Any documentation on this?

Thank you
