Adding a New Issue as a Child Issue

There are two ways to add a new issue as a child issue.

1. On the "Issues" page

Expand the “Subtasking” section below the issue description and click the "Add new child issue" button. The issue added on this page will become a child issue for this issue.

(If the issue is a child issue itself, the new issue will be a child issue for the same parent issue.)

2. On the "Add Issue" page

Click the "Add Parent Issue" link above the issue detail section, then put the parent issue key in the field.

 

(The parent issue must be within the same Project.)

You also can choose the parent issue from the list of existing issues by pressing the "Browse" button.
