Convert Multiple Tasks to Sub-Tasks in JIRA similar to Bulk Update using Script Runner

How to Convert A Large Number of JIRA Tasks into Sub-Tasks using the Adaptavist Script Runner Plugin with JIRA

In JIRA, there is no way to convert Tasks into Sub-Tasks using the built-in Bulk Update functionality.  The lack of the feature is described in many JIRA tickets and Confluence posts on the official Atlassian site such as the two listed below:


https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-13245https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/37825/is-there-a-way-to-en-mass-convert-subtask-to-issues
There are many potential workarounds to this such as using selenium scripting to automate the conversion process using browser automation.  The best solution I have found is to use scripting within JIRA.




Backup your System

Before you attempt this, you should backup your JIRA instance because you potentially can make changes to tasks you did not intend.
Go to System settings and scroll down to the IMPORT & EXPORT section:




Install JIRA Adaptavist Scriptrunner
