Display task name in Subject field of sub-task e-mail notification


I would like to display task name (parent task) in e-mail that comes when sub-task is created/modified/closed/etc. I checked https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Customising+Email+Content but found no glossary of variables available to use in email templates.

What I need - what variable has parent issue summary value.

When $issue.summary has sub-task summary, is there $parent.issue.summary with data from parent task?

What variable has flag is this sub-task or task?

Can I use 'if' operator in email template to selectively add or not add parent task summary?

This widget could not be displayed.

You can try below code. This will work.

For parent summary : ${issue.getParentObject().getSummary()}

Parent Key : ${issue.getParentObject().getKey()}
