Hi @Mukthadir Sikdar , 

 

you can use the following rule :

Then you can copy it and use it for any other status you need to synchronize.

 

Let me know if this helps,

thank you, How do i copy this for the other statuses?

my subtasks are also on a different workflow 

Hi @Mukthadir Sikdar 

What have you tried thus far for your use case?  As this is a commonly requested need, Atlassian has provided both examples and a template.

For an example, please look here: https://www.atlassian.com/software/jira/automation-template-library/rules#/rule/140671

For a template to get you started, please navigate to project settings > automation > library and you will see the starting rule.

Your specific need spans different status values, so consider if you want one rule that checks each status, one by one, or multiple rules (one for each status transition).  The one-rule approach will be easier to maintain.

Best regards,

Bill
