How do I create a 'sub task' type?


There are these issue types at the moment:

  • Epic
  • Bug
  • Story
  • Task
  • Sub-task

I need to add one more in the list but as a subtask. How do I do that?

If I try to add one, it is added as the main task (just like Bug, Story, Task) though I need a sub-task type here.

Hello @Surbhi Sharma ,

unfortunately it is currently not possible to create Sub-Task issue type in Next-Gen projects. There is a feature request already created though, you can vote on that here:

Sorry I could not help you any better.
