I need to display sub-task in my jira board, but when i went to some of the articles it clearly said that its not possible. But , i want to check with you if there is alternative to display sub-tasks alone on jira board.
The answer would be: It depends what you want to do.
It is possible to have a board with subtasks only. However, you will not be able to rank the subtasks freely (only within the parent issue).
The real question is: What do you really need? - Is a subtask-only board really what you are looking for, or are there better alternatives to your need?
So here is a screenshot of a "subtask-only" kanban backlog board:
Yeah, you got it right.
As I said, you will not see the Sub-Tasks in the Backlog View, only in the "Active sprints" view:
The Idea behind this behaviour:
In scrum you plan your backlog in stories. When the sprint starts, you might want to split your stories into chunks (sub-tasks). The sprint- and backlog-planning is always done on story level however. If your story is too big to plan as a whole, you'll need to do some story slicing.
So, it seems you want to use a scrum board, but don't want to work according to scrum.
You can switch to a kanban board as an alternative, or reconsider your need to plan sub-tasks.
