I am using Kanban, and when I have selected something for "Ready for development" and then create subtasks under it, those subtasks automatically go to the backlog so I need to manually move them.
I believe there maybe some kind of trigger I can setup ? Although I have no idea how to proceed.
Basically, the workflow I need is when a subtask is created it should take on the status of the parent.
Actually, the same thing happens with regards to the component, creating a subtask leaves the component empty so its not displayed on my board. It would be really beneficial to have the subtasks inherit automatically the component of the parent.
Any help would be really appreciated.
I am using the Cloud version of JIRA.
I am also curious as to why this happens. I understand that in its simplest form Kanban does not technically have a "Backlog" per se - that would be the To Do column of the board. But since Jira offers the possibility of enabling the Backlog also for Kanban boards it does sound counter-intuitive to me that Sub-Tasks do not automatically inherit the same state as the parent Task.
