Why do Subttasks automatticaly inherits components, can this be disabled?

When we create a subtask it automattically gets the components from the parent which we do not want to happen. Can this be disabled or changed some where?

Is there a way to disable or remove component from subtasks that are created

If your subtask has an own workflow, you can try to add postfunction "clear field value" for field component/s to transition "create". You can see that transition in workflow-browser after opening the details of status "open".

Hope that helps.

The clear field is still not affecting the create transition for components.

Seems to be a default behaviour and quite correct.

If your parent has Component A, B, C, the sub-task will have the same components, because in this context it is not useful to leave that field empty.

While creating a sub-task you should select which Component will be handled by the sub-task. If you select A only, you will only have A.
