How can I execute bulk or multiple conversions or moves for Issues and Sub-tasks?

Is it possible to move or convert multiple subtasks to another parent? Or Convert multiple 'Tasks' or 'Bug' type Issues to 'Story' type? Sometimes we have 10-15 changes that are required (i.e. convert 10 Tasks to Stories - for the same project). Thus far, we can only convert one at a time.

Thank you,

Sure you can move or convert multiple issues at once, please allow me to share this documentation with you,

which I believe will be of great help on this matter.

Hi David,

Sorry but at this moment, the feature to bulk convert issues into sub-tasks. Here's the feature request ticket -

Even bulk parent change for sub-tasks is still not available in JIRA -

Apologies for the inconveniences caused and I would suggest that you cast a vote on these feature request to raise the popularity.
