Post function to update story's sub-tasks

Is it possible to create a post function for a story which updates the sub-task's state?

I have a transition where an issue goes from "Backlog" to "Open". During this transition, if the story has any sub-tasks, I'd like them to get transitioned to "Open" as well. Right now, I have to click on each subtask (via the three dots menu) and transition each one individually. Since this is a consistent business process it'd be great to transition them all automatically.

For more information: I'm using a kanban board which has a filter that does not show Backlog issues. This way the kanban board is only focused on things that open / being worked on. In order for sub-tasks to show up on the kanban board they need to be properly transitioned as well.
