Transition Parent if subtask are closed

Hi All,


I am looking for a scriplet to put in the workflow of a subtask :

If all subtasks of Type X are Closed then parent should be moved to next stage. I am putting this condition in the workflow of Subtask of Type X, using the below condition, but it is not working:

issue.parentObject.subTaskObjects.findAll{ ="XXX"}.each{ == "Closed"} 

The parent transition occurs even if I close a single subtask of Type XXX, while I want this check to be performed for all subtasks of Type XXX.


Please assist

Hello @Hemanshu Sood

This is a built-in script available in the post-function for the Script runner plugin, thus you can use it as it is i..e out of the box

Hi @Tarun Sapra

this resolution is only valid when all subtasks( of all types) are resolved. My question is : what if we want to transition parent only when subtasks of a particular type are resolved only.

For this you would need to write code but can you please explain why do you have sub-tasks of "different types" what's the use-case?

Hi @Tarun Sapra

Use Case:

2 Kinds of subtasks X and Y are associated with a parent ticket.

There are 2 subtasks for type X and 2 for type Y. When I close only Y type of subtasks , parent should move a status further. I am using this condition to check ( fast track transition) , but it does not work:


issue.parentObject.subTaskObjects.findAll{ ="Y"}.each{ == "Closed"}

How to manage many similar workflows?

I have multiple projects that use variations of the same base workflow. The variations depend on the requirements of the project or issue type. The variations mostly come in the form of new statuses ...
