is there a way to limit number of subtasks?

Hi Support team,

I would like to ask about the plugin called "Quick Subtasks for JIRA". We are interesting this plug-in. 

It's quite easy to create multiple subtasks, each new line in the template makes a new subtask created. However I would like to ask, is there a way to limit the number of subtasks that will be created? For example: the specific group/role cannot add new line more than 20 lines (that means will be unable to create subtasks more than 20 subtasks). 

Thanks in advance.

I do not think this is possible out of the box. Here is the feature request logged on atlassian

Also worth mentioning is that more are the sub-tasks more will be performance issues while rendering the parent issue.


One more question, may be related to my question above. To visible the "Create multiple Sub-Tasks" link under More menu, can it be restricted to specific roles in project?

Thank you for your answer.
