Sub-task not inheriting Story values upon creation. v7.3.7

We just migrated from 6.4.1 to 7.3.7 (JIRA Software server)

While creating a subtask under a story, attributes like Component, FixVersion, AffectVersion etc. are not inheriting its value from story (parent). This was working 1-2 weeks ago and is now not working.  We don't have scriptrunner. 


I'm not sure ....

1) This feature is part of 7.3.7 but not turned on.  I don't know where to find it.

2) If I need to tweek the config file to enable this, like the re-enabling EXCEL export that was removed.

3) If there was a free add-on that used to do this for us. 

Any help appreciated!

Hi Tom,

There isn't a copy from parent post function in JIRA so you may have been using an add-on.  ScriptRunner can usually handle this, however, you may have also been using the JIRA Suite Utilities from Beecom.

If you still have access to your old instance I would check to see what add-ons are installed that are related to workflows and go from there.  You may also want to check for JIRA Misc Workflow Extensions.
