      Description

      Issue Summary

      When converting an issue linked to an Epic to a sub-task, if you set the parent to be the Epic, this will allow users to add sub-tasks to Epics directly.

      Steps to Reproduce

      1. Create a Jira Software project
      2. Create an Epic and some stories
      3. Make the stories children of the Epic
      4. Access one of the stories and convert it to a sub-task
      5. In the select parent step, add the issue key of the Epic

      Expected Results

      Jira blocks the user to move forward and warns the user that an Epic shouldn't have a sub-task

      Actual Results

      Jira allows the Epic to be the sub-tasks' parent and this enables the view to add more sub-tasks to the Epic

      Workaround

      Currently, there is no known workaround for this behavior. A workaround will be added here when available
