Move or Convert Subtask?

I know the answer to these two questions used to be "no," but figured I'd ask in case a more recent update to an application has changed the answer:

a) Is there a way to use either the REST API or the JIRA CLI (or a similar scriptable tool) to move an issue from one project to another?


b) Is there a way to un-subtask (convert to issue) using any of those methods, either?

Still no as far as I know :(. Certainly the CLI will support it once the APIs are available. Regarding a), you can workaround this by using cloneIssue provided you have Clone Plus Plugin for JIRA installed. Then delete the original. Not ideal.
