How to attach sub-workflows to statuses of the main workflow ?

Nero Mars November 27, 2020

Hello friends! I have another problem.

I have 5 workflows that are included in the same workflow schema.
One of the workflows is the main one. The other 4 are as sub-workflows that correspond to each status in the main workflow.

I need these 4 workflows to be associated with the statuses of the main workflow. That is, when I create a issue, it should have the first status of the first sub-workflows.
Further, it is also necessary that there was a transition from the last status of a sub-workflow to the first status of the next sub-workflow.

I think it can be done with groovy (may be by post functions), but have no idea how to implement it.
Perhaps I did not fully describe everything. I can tell you in detail if you need.

I will be glad to receive your answers!

There is no such thing as sub-workflows as you have defined them here.  By definition of status, an issue can only be in one istatus at a time, otherwise your reporting on status is nonsense.

You will either need to define your status as a single level and then build something that groups status together (similar to the status category that jira has already) or start breaking your issues down into sub-tasks that block the movement of their parents forward until they are complete.
