The Sub-Tasks Synchronizer automatically places sub-tasks under their respective parent issues in the structure.
This synchronizer is available only when Sub-Tasks are enabled in your Jira instance and you have at least one Sub-task issue type defined.
Sub-Tasks Synchronizer Parameters
You can select which sub-task issue types the synchronizer works with. Issues of other issue types will not be affected.
This synchronizer only supports Import / Resync into Structure (more about resync).
Sub-Tasks Synchronizer Rules
- When there is a sub-task (of one of the selected types) and its parent issue is in the structure, the sub-task is also added to the structure and placed under its parent task.
The parent issue must be in the structure already - the synchronizer does not add the parent AND sub-task, nor does it add a parent if the sub-tasks is already added.
You can add parent issues to structure manually, or use a Saved Filter synchronization to add parent issues (and probably sub-tasks) automatically.
- If a sub-task is already in the structure, and is located under a different parent (or at the top level), it will be moved under its subtask parent (with all sub-issues that it may have).
- Changes in structure are not synced back to sub-tasks: if you place an issue under another issue, it will not become a sub-task.
- If you move a sub-task away from its parent task, it will soon be moved back by the synchronizer.
