The Sub-task Extender pulls in sub-tasks to issues already in the structure. Sub-tasks will be placed beneath the current issues in the structure's hierarchy.
Due to technical differences in how items are linked, the Sub-task Extender only works for Classic projects.
For Next-Gen projects, use the Next-Gen Extender.
Adding a Sub-task Extender
To add a Sub-task Extender, open the Automation menu and select Sub-task Extender.
Each Sub-task Extender can be customized to create exactly the hierarchy you need.
You can customize:
Sub-task Types - Allows you to specify which types of sub-task to add to your structure, based on your sub-task configuration in Jira. To include all sub-tasks, check the All available sub-task types box.
Extend Levels - Allows you to select which levels in the hierarchy the extender should be applied to:
- All levels up to 10 (default) - The extender will be applied to the first 10 levels of the hierarchy, starting from the level where the extender itself is located.
- All levels - The extender will be applied to the current level and all its descendants.
- Current level only - The extender will only be applied to the same level in the hierarchy as the extender itself.
- Manual levels range - You can specify which levels the extender is applied to.
