I've had an idea of documenting my activities in my work diary based on JIRA task numbering. However, within an Issue, say Project-6, when I created a sub-task instead of getting something like Project-6-1 I got Project-9 (I already had some new Issues running). Is there a way of getting a proper number for my sub-task?
It's not a problem with JIRA, it's built to treat sub-tasks as issues in their own right with their own sequential number. They display their parent in most places when you need it, so you're not losing anything by having a flat numbering scheme.
A sub task is NOT just a little afterthought on the parent issue, it is a fully fledged issue in its own right. It needs a unique key and to fit in with the rest of the project. It's not "automatic numbering", it's "giving an issue the unique identifier it needs to be useful". So no, because you need it.
