When creating a subtask in Jira, it annoyingly doesn't inherit the default assignee as the parent card's assignee. Instead it falls back to the default assignee, which is usually the team lead.
This means, when folks are creating their own subtasks to track their work, most of the time those subtasks are assigned to the wrong person and have to be fixed.
Any way this can be fixed?
I don't thjink 'fixed' is the correct term. that implies a defect. I wouldn't want that behavior as a default. I believe you're asking for a way to change how the product works in YOUR instance. You can't do that out of the box. You'd have to go in and modify the source code or there may be a plug-in available. You never have instances where a subtask is created and assigned to someone else? We do subtasks for documentation, QA, Reviews, and other activities that need to be assigned to people other than the person creating the subtask much more often than subtasks for the assignee of the original issue.
