Sub-tasks - Is it possible to navigate to the parent

In the old view, you would be able to navigate to a parent via the breadcrumbs.

However, the new view seems to collapse it down to just show the ID of the current ticket (subtask), with no options to see that there is a parent, and no way to navigate to it.

My question: Am I missing something? Can I actually navigate from a sub-task to a parent, or even just see the name/id of the parent, when i'm viewing the ticket?

Noticed this starting as of today. There seems to be no breadcrumb. navigation or any means to recognize what the parent issue to the sub-task is in the new view.  It hurts. :-)

We created a ticket asking for clarifications on this , and I just turned off the new view in my JIRA here (while this is clarified/resolved).

My team noticed the change today as well - it's painful!  We use a lot of sub-tasks with our New Features and Improvements and being able to navigate back to the Parent from a sub-task is really important from a usability perspective.  We've submitted "feedback", hoping the Atlassian team will address/fix it soon.    Will try changing the view/setting as suggested by @Mayra Rodriguez as well (thanks for submitting/sharing!).

Same situation here, unfortunately.  I've submitted feedback and am keeping my fingers crossed that our pain is heard and resolved quickly.  Thank for submitting the issue!

Hi @Johnny Andersen ,

Welcome to the Community!

From what it looks like the parent/child breadcrumbs are only being display for epic links.  I didn't see anything reported for Issues/sub-tasks.  Might be worth calling out in the "Give Feedback" link at the top of the issue view.
