Introducing subtasks for breaking down work in next-gen projects


So from the documentation indicated to Siddhesh about Roadmaps, is the "bug" of not being able to add stories to epics after the fact fixed now? i.e. you don't have to add them by creating them from within epics? I'm loath to check and be disappointed.

Is it possible to disassociate a child task from a task? If not, when will this be supported?

The only option I see now is to delete the sub-task, but even having done so, the sub-task persists as a link on the parent task, and that link still leads to the deleted task.

Are subtasks available in Next Gen Service Desk project?

Is there any plan to add subtask to Roadmap? It would be very helpful if this feature is available.

I used to upload an google sheets file to create multiple subtasks when we finished our planning analysis, but I'm not sure if this is even possible now.

Any guidance here?

We upload them like this directly to the own User Story in "Create Multiple Subtasks" 

- Task Name example / issueType:"Sub-Task" / assignee:"Tom" / reporter:"Richard" / estimate:"8h"
- Task Name example 2 / issueType:"Sub-Task" / assignee:"John" / reporter:"Richard" / estimate:"4h"
- Task Name example 3 / issueType:"Sub-Task" / assignee:"John" / reporter:"Ellen" / estimate:"2h"
- Task Name example 4 / issueType:"Sub-Task" / assignee:"Ellen" / reporter:"John" / estimate:"1h"


This was really helpful for me to structure and avoid overloading people, will this be available?

I can't seem to find how to define different Sub-Task issue types. 

We used them in "old gen" Jira. 

- Sub task
- Sub task - bug
- Sub task - validation

My team is unable to see the option to GROUP by Subtask. They have 'member' access to the project. It is only available to Admin access. How can I make these available for all? Right now, they don't have a way to see their subtasks unless they know which story the subtasks are.

@Jocelyn_Ramirez this is in progress at the moment... ("Enable everyone on the team to personalize their view of the board")

@Christian Giroux it is possible to have one issue type at the subtask level for now. We will look to extend this in the future but there is no ETA on this

Thanks @Eoin for your reply. If the board doesn't allow team members to see their sub-tasks. Is there any way you suggest for team members to be able to see their sub-tasks in a next-gen scrum project? Thanks!

@Jocelyn_Ramirez when the grouping is mage available as a setting that everyone can use, this will allow some people in your team to view the Board grouped by subtasks and other to view the Board grouped by stories
