    Copy custom field values from parent to subtasks on creation

    Copy custom field values from parent to sub-tasks

    Ability to hide fields on subtask screen

    Restrict to issuetypes & custom fields

    Note: Standard fields like summary are not supported

    You can hide the custom fields on subtask screen to automatically copy the values or leave them on screen to allow users to modify if needed

    You can restrict the functionality to selected issue types and custom fields.

    More details

    Copy to Subtak plugin lets you copy the custom field values (not standard JIRA fields like summary or description) from parent issue to its subtasks on creation.

    There are minor configurations available using which you can limit this functionality to selected issueTypes and Custom Fields. You can also optionally hide the custom fields that are to be copied from the create subtask screen. Without this, the value will be pre-populated from the parent issue but can be overwritten on creation of the actual subtask.

    Check out the version compatiability for JIRA to download the matching version.

    Look at the documentation for installation details.

    NOTE: You must install the jsp files along with the plugin jar.

    Whic version are you using? Did you deploy the jsp files as well? We have tested it in 6.4 and it works fine. Existing customers have confirmed that as well.

    Can you raise a ticket at https://j-tricks.atlassian.net/browse/JCTS instead of a marketplace review? Thanks in advance.

    I have also given below the URL that comes on the blank screen. The IP address before \secure is not provided here. .................... /secure/JCTSCreateSubTaskIssueDetails.jspa Hello, When click more>Create Subtask-JCTS, it does populate the fields that are configured but nothing happens when I click 'Create'. All I see is blank screen and nothing is saved. Can you please help. If needed , I can provide screenshots. But the steps are as mentioned above. Regards Narayanan

    Hi, That's a bit strange. Can you file a support request in our JIRA? https://j-tricks.atlassian.net/browse/JCTS

    We have installed it and it works according to description. It is very easy to configure. The only drawback we saw is that it adds a separate "Create Subtask - JCTS" command to create the subtasks next to the native "Create Sub-Task" command. This will be the reason why we will not use it.

    Hi, Unfortunately, we cannot override the existing JIRA option. It is sort of similar to how Tempo adds its own "Log Work" on top of the JIRA default one. Hope that makes sense!

    You can, however, disable the standard 'Create Subtask' option, if you would like.
