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.
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:
