Go to the issue view, and use the "convert to sub-task" option in the actions menu.

Thank you that works !

I don't see that option on the new issue view for bugs. Is this something you can configure?

No, it's not there yet in the new view.  It's not configurable.

I can't find this in either view. Is this still an option?

I'm also struggling with this

I am worried they have removed this feature...

I managed to get this working today by rolling back to the 'old view' when viewing an individual ticket, hopefully they will port this feature to the new layout once complete

The move action should also let you do what you need, keep the same project and just change the issue type to whatever sub-task you have defined.

Moving it only lets you (or just me idk) change the type from one of "Epic", "Story", "Task", "Bug". No Sub-task option there

Same limited options as above.

No option to convert to a subtask...

FWIW, there were no subtasks under this issue that might have prevented the subtask option from appearing

Hi All,

when you use 'old view' not new view, you still can see more functions including 'convert to sub-task'

it's shown above - almost head line inside every issue
