By using the Jira Autimation is it possible if i change the Change request status it will modify


Is it possible in Jira Can we implement a Automation which is if i modify the status for Sub task of change request then parent (Change Request) status would be set as what ever i have set in the subtask.

If i modify the status in main parent task then Subtask status also need to change vice versa.

If yes please help me out how to do the same.

Hello @Sreenadh 

I see that you are posting lots of questions about Automation Rules. I encourage you to spend some time reviewing the documentation for this topic to learn what can be done.

What you describe above can be done. There are template rules in the Automation library that you can use as a starting point. The two shown below that mention sub-tasks and parents are the ones you want to look at.

For the change Parent issue based on Subtask, you would need to make changes to the rule as follows.

1. If you want the parent changed regardless of the Status value selected for the subtask, you would remove the Status value selection in the trigger.

2. You would want to check that the value of the parent Status was not already the same as the value of the subtask status. This requires the use of an Advanced Compare and a smart value.

3. If you want the change to happen only if all the subtasks are set to the same status, you need to change the condition that checks the value of the other subtasks to also use a smart value rather than an explicit Status value.

4. In the last step where the issue is transitioned, instead of explicitly setting the status of the issue you would want to instead use "Copy from trigger issue".


Here is the documentation home page about smart values.

Using those hints you should be able to extrapolate to make similar changes to the template for changing the subtasks when a parent Status value changes.
