Target version:-


The change done to #13673 broke a lot for us... and would like that to be reverted.

Seeing only parent issue number makes the column useless because we do not know what the parent is about :/ often parent subject contains general information (e.g. test A) and then more details in subtasks (e.g. prepare setup, make report, etc.), now I see only few tasks like prepare setup with no information what the setup is for :/

Wasn't better fix for this provided in #19120 and in note #13673#note-13? Or maybe an option in settings or additional column for parent subject?

We are willing to implement this but need to know which way community wants to go...

Since the community is divided on this one, why not take the simple approach: 2 columns.

1-parent ID
2-parent name

That way, people can choose the one they want and can even have different ways to show it in different filters.
