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?

You can try below code. This will work.

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

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