You'll need an add-on or code to do that.  There's nothing built into JIRA, except for the Software trick that can check when a parent has its last sub-task moved to done, and it moves the parent automatically.

Your code will need to check all the subtasks and then read the parent to check its status and issue the transition if it's appropriate.

Hi Sudhakar

As @Nic Brough [Adaptavist] has said, JIRA does not have something in-built into it as of now. However, if you are on a standalone version of JIRA and you have script runner installed then you can traverse through the sub-tasks and check for the status and then invoke a transition.

To start off with, I think the below snippet will be useful.

 

Collection<Issue> subTaskList = subTaskManager.getSubTaskObjects(issue);
Resolution resolutionObj=issue.getResolutionObject();
if(resolutionObj != null && resolutionObj.getName().equals("<Current State>")){ // To check if the parent is in the state that you want.
boolean anysubtaskNotclosed = false;
for(Issue subTaskObj : subTaskList){
	Status subStatus = subTaskObj.getStatusObject(); 
	if(subStatus.getName().equals("<Status of Sub-Task>")==false{
		anysubtaskNotclosed = true;
		break;
}
}
 
if(!anysubtaskNotclosed)
{
	// Code to transition the parent to the state you want
}

 

Hope this helps.

 

Thanks

You can also use the JIRA Misc Workflow Extension add-on which provides post functions to "transition parent issue" and "transition linked issues."
