Is it possible to create different types of sub-task?


Just as it's possible to create different issue types (i.e story, epic, bug, etc), is it also to create different types of sub task (i.e technical, bug)?

I'm not sure I can add to that - if you know how to create top-level issue types, you can do it for sub-tasks - there's a flag on the create screen.

Yes. When you create a issuetype, you can choose whether it is a standard issuetype or a subtask issuetype.
