Hi @Nikola Grbovic -- Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

What have you tried so far?  It may help to post an image of your rule for the community to have context to offer ideas.

For something similar to your use case, please take a look at this rule in the automation library:

Best regards,

Here is something I tried using url you provided:




I get NO ACTIONS PERFORMED as status.  Description the following issues did not match the condition: "points to subtask". I guess something more is needed since it point to right subtask. 

I haven't had consistent results with that related issues condition... How about trying a simpler rule, if it meets your use case:

  • trigger: issue transitioned to Review
  • condition: issue is a sub-task
  • branch: for parent
    • condition: if status is not Selected (or any later status values in your check any possible status values you want)
    • action: transition to Selected

In this way, if any sub-task transitions to Review, it can trigger the rule, but the parent will only transition to Selected for the first one that meets your checks.
