When converting bug to subtask, How to keep all relevant data?

When I convert bug to subtask, I want to keep the relevant data of the fields: FixedInBuild, Safety, Safety Comment etc.

How can I keep this data (that exists in the bug screen) when converting to a subtask?

I don't need this data to be required or mandatory on every "regular"/"Non converted from bug" subtask, I jus't want it to be copied from the bug screen to the subtask screen

Thank you,

Make sure those fields are included on your view screen for subtasks.  This way the data will be displayed when the issue is moved but will remain read only.



Also check the field context (that's where you can lose data permanently during a conversion) and the field configuration which can hide or show it.
