Hello @Ravindra Kumbhar ,

Subtask issue types are different from regualar issue types.

If your project doesn't already have a subtask issue type, you'll need to add one.

  1. Navigate to your next-gen software project.
  2. Go to Project Settings > Issue types.
  3. Select Add issue type.
  4. Select Subtask.

You can create subtasks under any standard issues, like Stories, Bugs, or Tasks. Note that you cannot create subtasks under Epics or other Subtasks.


Thank you for response, i managed to created sub task by adding child task in task.
