The work process Edited

Start a task and then automatically divide it into three smaller tasks,which

are assigned to the relevant people and automatically shutdown when

the three tasks are completed.


I want to ask How to set up this task?

Hi Eddy,

with Jira out-of-the-box, this is not possible. You need plugins for that. 

For creating subtasks in a workflow post function, we are using the Jira Workflow Toolbox ( - among many other things, it gives you a function to create subtasks, as much as you need.

The subtasks should have another workflow post function that triggers its parent close transition. For that we are using the plugin "Jira Misc Workflow Extensions".

To ensure, that only the last one is closing the parent issue, you should set a workflow condition on the close-transition that checks, whether all subtask are closed (do that with the Plugin Suite Utilities for Jira). 


Thank you  Thomas.
