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.

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:
