View/Edit permission groups for subtasks

Is there a easy way to do the following:

Subtask_1  for issue type 1 - Only allow view/edit permissions for Group-A  && jira_administrators

Subtask_2 for Issue type 2 -  Only allow view/edit permissions for Group-B && jira_administrators


Basically I have groups set up for various teams and want only the relevant sub-tasks to be presented for editing, instead of all the other potential subtasks that could be in the system that don't relate to the user group's responsibility.  

I've seen one other post regarding this, but there doesn't seem to be a solid solution.  Is this a limitation of JIRA as a whole?

Hi James!

1 issue-subtask connection: try script validator for subtask create step

2 premissions: its easy, JIRA Misc Workflow Extensions plugin will help. use security level post-function.


P.S. Maybe you will need to clone workflow for every issue type.



Thanks so much, I'll take that route.
