i have a question about the sub-tasks in Jira.
When I create a sub-task under a issue, this task has always the type of the parent issue. Is possible to create a sub-task from another type of issue?
For example: Parent issue "Kundenkontakt" --> Sub-Task "Aufgabe" ?
thank you for your answer.
I think I have expressed myself wrong. I want to have other fields in the sub-task.
For example, I have parent named "Customer Contact". This results in a sub-task called "Job". This has its own assignee, a category, and other specific Fields etc. So actually a separate project. Is this possible in jira?
It sounds like there's a little confusion here.
With JIRA, the available sub-task list is part of the issue list. If you were to set up an issue type scheme of:
Then a user clicking "create issue" will be offered "Bug", "Feature" and "Customer Contact". A user creating a sub-task will be offered "Job" and "Technical Task". Note that the parent issue type is irrelevant - Bugs, Features and Contacts can all have Jobs or Technical Tasks, or both.
To change (i.e. add/remove) issue types from this, check out the Project's "issue type scheme".
Outside the Issue/sub-task relationship though, sub-tasks behave as though they are just another "issue type". This means you can hang different configurations off them. I tend to use "screens" to do this - for your requirement, you'd create a different set of create/edit/view screens that include your category field and others, and apply those to the "Job" sub-task (technical tasks could stick with what the parents have, or even take another set of fields)
