Is There any way to create "Sub-Component" for a Project..?

Is There any way to create "Sub-Component" for a Project under a component (like a dependent component)

That's not possible jira does not support hierarchical components, in my previous organization we used cascading select field to achieve this, we created a two level cascading select field first option list is same as component names but hidden by javascript, on component on change method set the value in first level which will automatically update options at second level.

i would like to assign default assignee for each items in the cascading select field first option list.

Is this Possible..?

I don't think that's possible by minor tweaks, as you would also need a place where you can define the assignment based on subcomponents IMHO it would be a lot of work to get it right, won't be possible by tweaking javascript.

if you're looking to assign to sub-components, short of a lot of coding work, I'd just use the components and use structured text to imply a kind of hierarchy...

MyMajorComponent-FirstSubComponent - Assignee=User1

MyMajorComponent-SecondSubComponent - Assignee=User2

MyOtherComponent-FirstSubComponent - Assignee=User3

It's less than perfect but it's workable
