subtask inherits value for label(s) from parent issue

is there a way to configure JIRA so that:

  1. Create Issue (issue type = story)
  2. Add a label to the issue
  3. Create a sub-task
  4. The value of lable from the parent issue propogates to the sub-task?

Hi Edward,

To achieve this, you can use the JIRA Misc Workflow Extensions plugin:

https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.innovalog.jmwe.jira-misc-workflow-extensions

There is an option called "Set field value from parent".

Hope that helps.

Thanks Andre! Will give this a try.

I would not consider this resolved as this plugin has a associated cost. Please provide a way to do this without a added expense

You'll still need an add-on to do it.  I'm not aware of any free ones with this function.

So as of today, this is not "native"? To be able to inherit "label" fields to subtasks created from the maintask?

We are trying to detatch the dependencie of having fixVersions on "not-ready" issues.

Is there a way to make this behavior happen without plug-ins in the latest version of jira/greenhopper?

I too would be very interested in this!!
