Make sub-task issuetype default for any issue in jira server version 8.5.1

I want to make sub-task as a default issue type whenever a sub-task is created for any issue.

I read a few articles which said that rearranging the issue types will make sub-ask appear in the first place did not work for me.

Can anyone help here?

Hi @Priyanka 

Welcome to the Atlassian Community. 

It is currently not possible to set the default subtask type in Jira out of the box. 

A suggestion ticket for this has been raised here:

I encourage you to vote on the feature request ticket to increase its popularity and add yourself as a watcher to be kept informed of progress going forward. 

Have a nice day.

Hi @Priyanka 

I did further research and you might be able to achieve it using Scriptrunner. The steps to configure this can be found here:

Please let us know if you have any further questions.
