Can I set creation of unassigned subtasks e.g. after subtask creation subtask is not assigned to anybody.

In version JIRA 6.3 it was by default, in 7.2 default assignee is used - which for us is not good.

This widget could not be displayed.

Is the setting "disable unassigned issues" in your JIRA's general configuration switched on? If not, then the project lead is used as a fallback, otherwise you should be able to create subtasks without an assignee set.

More documentation about how to set the assignee can be found in the wiki:

If you've checked the settings and think that it is an error, please feel free to file a new feature/bug request in the project's issue tracker here:
