Can I automatically close any/all subtasks when the parent task is closed ?

Yes you can but you will need an add-on to do that (like the JIRA ScriptRunner).

JIRA does not have a native functionality to close a sub task once the parent issue is closed.

We do have the JIRA ScriptRunner plugin.

There's now a very easy to configure way to transition parents and sub-tasks in sync using Automation for JIRA!

You can easily modify related issues (such as parents, stories, sub-tasks, epics, linked issues and even JQL) using our related issues action and condition:

(this example transitions sub-tasks to "In Progress", but you could change that to "Closed" very easily)
