Delete subtasks in scrip runner through post-function or automation

How to delete subtasks with specific condition on jira version 8.14.0 by transition

You could write a post-function script that checks your conditions and deletes the relecant sub-tasks, but I would very strongly recommend that you do not automate this.

Deleted issues are gone, utterly destroyed, you have no record that they were even there, let alone what they were for.

This makes a nonsense of a tracking system, and with an automation, it means you're destroying information without human oversight.

Hi @Nouf_Alshabanat 

You would need an app like ScriptRunner for Jira or Automation for doing that.

In case you already have ScriptRunner you can write script to check for specific conditions and use a code like this below to delete the issue.

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.event.type.EventDispatchOption
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue
import com.atlassian.jira.user.ApplicationUser

IssueManager im = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager()
def issue = im.getIssueObject("SCRUM-25") as MutableIssue

ApplicationUser user = ComponentAccessor.getUserManager().getUserByName("admin")

im.deleteIssue(user, issue, EventDispatchOption.ISSUE_DELETED, false)

I hope it helps.


should i add a function for reindex?
