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

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.
