Sub-tasks Extender

The Sub-tasks Extender pulls in sub-tasks belonging to issues already in the structure. The sub-tasks will be placed beneath the issues in your hierarchy.

Structure with a sub-task extender

Customize Your Extender

Each Sub-tasks Extender can be customized to create exactly the hierarchy you need.

You can customize:

Sub-task Types - Allows you to specify which types of sub-tasks should be included in your structure. To include all sub-tasks, check the "All available sub-task types" box.

Extend Levels - Allows you to select which levels in the hierarchy the extender should be applied to:

  • All levels up to 10 (default) - The extender will be applied to the first 10 levels of the hierarchy, starting from the level where the extender itself is located.
  • All levels - The extender will be applied to the current level and all its descendants.
  • Current level only - The extender will only be applied to the same level in the hierarchy as the extender itself.
  • Manual levels range - You can specify which levels the extender is applied to.

See Generator Scope to learn more about customizing levels.

Allow changes via Structure - If this option is checked, sub-tasks will be assigned to new parents as you move them in your structure.

Runs As

When a generator runs, it runs as the structure owner. This is important because the generator will have access to the same projects, issues, etc. as the user listed here – if they don’t have permission to view an issue, it won’t be added to the structure.


The Sub-tasks Extender can be used with other generators to build complex hierarchies. For example, to build an Epic > Story > Sub-task hierarchy:

  1. Add all your epics with Agile Board Insert
  2. Place issues beneath them, using the Stories Under Epics Extender
  3. Place sub-tasks beneath issues, using the Sub-tasks Extender
