Copy to subtask Plugin
Copy to Subtask plugin lets you copy the custom field values from parent issue to its subtasks on creation.
Checkout the plugin page for details. Btw, if you haven't guessed it yet, the plugin is absolutely FREE!
There are two steps in the installation of this plugin.
- Install the plugin via UPM - either from Marketplace or by uploading the jar after downloading it from here.
- Download the JSP file zip from here and extract it in the atlassian-jira/secure/views directory. After extracting, there will be 3 jsp files in the atlassian-jira/secure/views/plugins directory. No need to restart JIRA after extracting the files.
Note: atlassian-jira/secure and atlassian-jira/secure/views folders already contains other JSP files. The 3 JSP files in the above zip will go into atlassian-jira/secure/views/plugins folder.
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 auto populated from the parent on the screen and can then be overwritten!
