Currently sub tasks and Stories have time tracking enabled and required, because we always log work on sub task level it is unnecessary and a pain to have required time tracking on the story level. I don't see how to set this within the configuration, any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
Permissions are done at a project level, so at a glance, you can't do this.
However, if you are willing to set up two workflows, you can do it. Associate the workflow you have now with the sub-tasks, and the copy with the parent issue types. Now, edit the copy, and put "workflow properties" on all the status, such that "log work" is blocked. See https://confluence.atlassian.com/adminjiraserver071/workflow-properties-802592825.html for the detail (but from memory, setting jira.permission.worklog is the one )
