I figured out that to remove a child task from a parent task, you have to go into the child task and remove the parent.

But I think it would be nice that under the add link for sub-tasks, we have a 'remove' on the parent task. I think it makes logical sense to be able to remove from here in the same way you can add.

I wrote a patch to realize this feature.

When applying this patch, "Delete link to subtask button" will be added.
Pressing this button has the same effect as when emptying the "parent task field" on the child issue editing screen.

  • Target version set to 4.1.0

The patch adds a button to remove subtask in the "Subtasks" section of an issue. Since the button looks consistent with existing buttons in "Related issues" section, I am in favor of merging the patch.

But I am not sure if it is OK with JPL to use "no_flash" parameter to suppress a flash message.
