In Next Gen Projects, we have sub tasks - however, my QA wants to add bugs to the User Story and then view them in the scrum board under the user story - The only way i thought we could achieve this was to create a new issue type as "Sub Type Bug", using a Sub Type issue (template) however i cannot find how to create a new sub type issue type under project settings - can anyone help?
Welcome to Atlassian community!
Indeed, in JIRA Next-gen you can only use the default single type of sub-task for now. In fact, the sub-task functionality is a relatively new feature in next-gen (It was implemented two months ago as you can see in this link), so I believe our developers will be adding further improvements to it in the next months.
For reference, you can check below the feature request opened to allow the creation of multiple sub-task types in Next-gen projects:
Feel free to vote and watch the suggestion to increase its priority and also receive notifications about any updates.
Let me know if you have any questions.
Unfortunately, we have not implemented that feature on Jira Next-gen yet.
The good news is that the feature request has received a good number of votes and should already be considered by our development team.
Just like mentioned before, you can click to watch the feature request and be aware of any updates as soon as our development team has anything:
Also, make sure to add your feedback on that feature request as well, since that is the main source our developers are measuring its impact and requirement.
As you can see in the Feature request, the last update added this month (February 2021) is that this is not something that will be prioritized in the next few months, unfortunately.
In fact, our dev team is running against the time to have all the bugs related to the new issue view properly fixed before the full implementation of the new issue view, that will happen next month as specified here, so they will definitely be focusing on those bugs for now.
Please, ensure you've voted and watched the feature request to confirm our developers are aware of the importance of this feature.
