When reopening a Sub, can it automatically open the parent?


   Can I set a post function where when a sub-task is reopened, it will automatically reopen the parent?

Yes, you can get the parent object of the issue and easily transition it to open state in the post-function (but only do it after checking that the current issue is a sub-task if sub-task and parent share the same workflow)

Here's the code in the answer, you need script runner installed.
