Automatic subtask status change depending on previous subtask status

I have several projects that we need to have the ability to have a child(subtask) automatically assigned when the preceding child (subtask) is closed/done.  I am unsure how to configure this.  Additionally when the parent (task) is closed I want to be able to configure it so that the next parent(task) is auto assigned and the same with the initial child (subtask)

You'll definitely need some coding to do that.  It's not something built into Jira at all.  Sub-tasks are discrete tasks within their parent and have no order or dependency on each other.

I would, as usual, reach for the Script Runner add-on, but there are other scripting and automation add-ons available that might help you.
