Creating a Sub Task in JIRA

Next we'll create a subtask in JIRA, and through the update process bring the new issue back into Microsoft Project.

Sub-tasks are checked under each "updated" task in Microsoft Project. We only need to highlight the parent task.

Select the parent task and choose the "Update From JIRA" option.

During the update process, The Connector will check any sub-tasks that belong to the parent. Notice that The Connector has detected the new sub-task that was created.

You will be prompted with a dialog on how you wish to handle the new task. The default is to import and indent it under the parent task, but you can choose from any of the other options.

After this process, you'll notice that the new task that was found was imported and added to the current project sheet.
