Validation on Siblings Sub-tasks

Below is my requirement. Let me know how can we achieve this.

Parent Issue has 3 sub-tasks say A,B,C.
A,B follows workflow (Open --> In Progress --> Resolved)
C follows workflow (Open --> Approved --> Resolved)

I need to add validation for sub-tasks C where it can be Approved only when sibling sub-tasks A and B are in status Resolved.

Let me know for any clarification.

Thanks
Vinay

You can add a Conditioned validator (from Update on Transition for JIRA) that uses a JQL query to determine the condition to proceed. Here is a how-to: 

You can write a scripted condition/validator which should look like the one below (might need a few corrections, but will give you an idea)

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue
import com.opensymphony.workflow.WorkflowContext;
import com.atlassian.jira.config.SubTaskManager
import com.atlassian.jira.workflow.WorkflowTransitionUtil;
import com.atlassian.jira.workflow.WorkflowTransitionUtilImpl;
import com.atlassian.jira.util.JiraUtils;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.status.Status
 
def areDependentSubTasksResolved(Issue issue) {
    SubTaskManager subTaskManager = ComponentAccessor.getSubTaskManager();
    Collection subTasks = issue.getSubTaskObjects();
 
    if (subTasks.isEmpty())
        return false;
 
    for (currIssue in subTasks)
    {
        if (currIssue.issueTypeObject.name == "ABType" && currIssue.getStatusObject().name != "Resolved")
            return false;
 
    }
 
    return true;
 
}
if(issue.issueTypeObject.name  == 'CTask') {
	return areDependentSubTasksResolved(issue.parentObject));
}
return true

This was also created as a support request so I will add my answer also:

You probably want a condition rather than a validator. Add the condition to the Approve transition only of issue type C.

You can use a "Simple Scripted Condition" with the following code:


{code}
def parent = issue.parentObject
def otherSubtasks = parent.subTaskObjects.findAll { it.issueTypeObject.name in ["A", "B"]}
return otherSubtasks.every {
    it.statusObject.name == "Resolved"
}
{code}

Update the A, B issue type names as necessary.

CQ is so broken today, |I give up trying to get the formatting right.

I'm getting a deprecation error with "issueTypeObject" but can't seem to find an equivalent solution using "getIssueType", which is what's recommended.

To top it off, the Developer's page says that "getIssueType" has been deprecated but to use "issueTypeObject". 

Curious if this is the most recent and just getting incorrect errors or if I'm misunderstanding the Developer documentation?
