How is issue hierarchy provided by Structure different from the standard sub-tasks?


Sub-tasks have several major limitations:

  • Sub-tasks are only a one-level hierarchy
  • Sub-tasks are separate issue types
  • Sub-tasks always inherit project and security level from their parent task

None of these limitations are present in Structure. At the same time, Structure provides all the features that sub-tasks have, and more. You can even use existing sub-tasks to build your structure's hierarchy, using the Sub-tasks Extender.
