    • We collect Jira feedback from various sources, and we evaluate what we've collected when planning our product roadmap. To understand how this piece of feedback will be reviewed, see our Implementation of New Features Policy.

      It became a best practice to define a feature request, improvements etc. as a parent issue and
      to break down the implementation tech details into sub-tasks.

      Unfortunately, everybody with permission Create Issues is able to create sub-tasks.

      There is no way for project lead to enforce a

      • "How to create a sub-task" policy

      It's very time time-consuming to review every issue and to decide the right type (parent or sub-task).
      This leads to all the feature requests like JRA-5410, JRA-5617 and JRA-5869.

      My improvement request: please add a new permission type

      • Create Sub-Tasks

      Based on this improvement, a project lead will be able decide whom to give the permission
      to create sub-tasks (e.g. to experienced team members), and not give (e.g. customers, etc.)

      And together with JRA-5410 and JRA-5617, it becomes a wonderful housekeeping toolset for pro project leads.

      BTW, please consider to rename sub-task to sub-issues to become more consistent - check JRA-6923.
