Can automation be put in place to prevent the transitioning of an Epic if the Child Issues below the Epic is not in Done Status?
We are using a Next-Gen Project?

Hi Maritsa - Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

Automation for Jira cannot prevent an action from taking place - you need to handle that in the workflow.

Edit the workflow to add a condition to the transition to Done. 

But you are probably going to need an add-on like JMWE to be able to prevent that.
