why the fix version is not get inherited for sub task from parent task?

When i create a sub task the filed "Fix version" is not get inherited from its parent task.

Why this is happening? What are the things get inherited from parent task to sub task when we create a one?

Please let me know about this, thanks.

there is little that is inherited by default. if you wish to do this you can use a workflow Post function. Here are the basic steps:

  1. copy the current workflow used by the parent (story, task, etc) and save/name it for your sub-task workflow.
  2. edit the new workflow and add a Post Function to the Create transition. Choose the "Copy Value From Other Field" post function.
  3. select the fix version field
  4. add the new workflow to your available workflows in the given project and associate the sub-task issue type to the new workflow.

I hope this helps. Note you can repeat step 2-3 for any other fields you wish to inherit.
