Subtask issue creation

I'm getting an error "you are not allowed to create this type of issue" when attempting to create a subtask off the parent.  I have added subtask issue types in the ITS and I have full permissions to the Project.  A subtask workflow and screen are present.  Any ideas on what to take a look at that I am missing?

Hey there,
maybe the subtask workflow has some validator that your role/group don't fit?  
It should definitely depend on the configuration.

Hi Chris,

Are you able to create issues too? If not, it might be that your license could be expired.

Simon, Thanks for your answer and suggestion.  I did find a script Validator running excluding all except for one group.  (This was a prior addition) Once removed, I was able to create a subtask.
