Issue Types in JIRA

Is there a differentiation between subtask issue type vs parent issue type ?

what I would like displayed in issue navigator is a way to display title of subtask or issue type for subtask.

Thank you

To show a list of subtask titles that belong to a given parent issue, will take custom programming. As I said, JIRA Agile does a hint of that in their Work view.

Your question is difficult to understand because of the overloaded names in JIRA. "subtask" in JIRA is used both as an issue-type "name" and as an issue-type classification. For example, I believe out of the box JIRA comes with a subtask (classification) by the name of "Technical Task" as well as another subtask by the name of "Sub Task". Both of them have titles: the Summary field.

It would be possible to show the parent of a subtask in issue navigator but you'd need a custom report to show the subtasks for the parent issue. One exception is in the Board (JIRA Agile) where you can show issues grouped by their parent item.

I had a question from a user to display SubTask Type in issue navigator when I am running the issueFunction in has SubTasks().

Currently what it shows is a list of SubTask Id's.
