Next-Gen Add bug as Child Issue to Story

Background: SubTasks were recently added to NextGen projects. These are child tasks to a Story or Task.


Outcome: We'd like to allow bugs to be a child issue underneath a Story or Task. 


Motivation: we'd like to associate the bugs directly to the story they relate to (assuming the bug affects just one story/task). This will simplify the management of work in progress and make it clear what's required to close out a story that is active in the sprint.

Hello Andy,

Thank you for reaching out.

I understand that you would like to add the bug issue type as a child of Story issue types in a Next-gen project.

As you mentioned, the sub-task functionality was recently implemented on Next-gen, so we only have the possibility to use the default sub-task issue type for now.

Of course, we are still working to improve that functionality for Next-gen. For the feature you are asking for, we created the following feature request to properly track our development team progress:

Allow the creation of Multiple Sub-task issue types in Next-gen
