Is there a way to Close Epics when all child issues are marked done/closed? Right now I noticed we have to change each Epic manually which is very time consuming.
You can setup a post function on the transition to close an epic when all linked issues are closed. https://confluence.atlassian.com/adminjiracloud/advanced-workflow-configuration-776636620.html#Advancedworkflowconfiguration-postfunctions
Here's a screen cap of it configured. You'll have to figure it on all of your workflows.
Hi, like Nir suggests, you can use ScriptRunner. With Scriptrunner you can create a scripted post function in the workflow for Stories which checks if it is the last unresolved child issue and closes the Epic if true.
However, bear in mind that users not always want to have the epic closed automatically. A better solution would be to present the user with a screen that asks the user if the epic can now be closed.
Hi Rik, Appreciate your response. As I mentioned in my comment to Nir, I am looking for a way to do this without add-on. I'm aware this can be done using ScriptRunner.
I tried Automation Lite but there is a limitation to apply an automation rule to all users in a project and moreover it is working at story level, but not at Epic level
If you have scriptrunner and you know groovy, you can write a code that will do it for you.
