Copy subtasks

This chapter provides information about copying subtasks.

While creating a new issue from the template, it’s subtasks are copied by default. Thanks to this, subtasks are created under newly created issue without any manual work.

All required fields are copied from the subtask’s template, regardless the scope settings. Optional fields are copied only if added to the scope.

Subtask will be created with reporter set to current user (the user which applies the template). If the reporter field is added to the scope, it will be applied to the subtask after it is created.

Also note that creating subtasks may take some time. You may need to refresh the page to see changes.
