      Description

      Atlassian Status as of 5 November 2014

      Hi everyone,

      Thanks so much for your votes and comments on this issue. We don't have plans to address this feature in the next 12 months, but this on our roadmap and we plan to address it in the future.

      In the meantime, there is one workaround provided by another customer which on premise customers can use.

      Thanks for your patience and we hope you appreciate our open approach to feature requests.

      Cheers,

      Bartek

      Original request description

      In 3.9 JIRA introduced "Convert Issue to Sub-task" and "Convert Sub-task to Issue".
      It would be handy to be able to bulk convert.

          considering this thread started back in 2008, not holding out much hope, but one can still cling to a tiny sliver of hope - come on Atlassian, make this happen. now.

          Usually "roadmap" implies there is a schedule, and "on the roadmap" means an item is on the schedule. Also, to "plan" means to decide on and arrange in advance. This suggestion is apparently not on any roadmap. There is apparently no plan to address it in the future, unless the plan is just to periodically update the description to talk about other (unrelated) issues which were worked on instead. What's the point of that, other than to keep our hopes up longer, only to be ultimately disappointed?

          Atlassian, please be honest and do not continue to say this is on your roadmap unless it really is. If it is, show us the roadmap, the schedule of when it will be addressed. Otherwise, close this issue with "will not fix", or at least "duly noted". It's really not cool to keep a suggestion open for so long (7 years!!) and not make a decision about it one way or another. If for some reason you later have a change of heart, certainly you can reopen the issue at that time.

          I recently filled out an Atlassian survey. I gave them 1/5 for "Atlassian listens". This is one of the examples of why.

          8 year.....

          Your description states not in the next 12 months I think you need to update the description to not in the next 96 months.

          Can you get this basic feature implemented please.
