Change issue status when sub-tasks meet certain criteria

I would like to make it so that when a task has a Waiting status and all tasks that block it are resolved, then that status would automatically turn to In Progress

Hi @Andrei Sirotin

I've put together an example for you on how you achieve this.

example.png@Alexander Pappert was pretty close with his example.

You start with an Issue Transitioned trigger and choose the resolved status as the To status. In my example project, this is "Done". 

We then branch onto the issues it is linked to. In particular, I've chosen the type "blocks", so we'll only branch on issues that the resolved ticket blocks.

Next, we don't know if there are other issues also blocking this one or not, so we can't just transition it. However, we're now in the context of that issue, so we do a check on it.
In this case, we use the Related Issues condition.

We chose linked issues and the type "is blocked by" to find all the blocking issues, not just the one that triggered the rule. We then include JQL to ensure that all of them are resolved, as in the example above. If that is passed then we can transition our issue.

Hopefully that helps.



Thanks a lot :D

Will test it out when I can.

Like Simeon Ross likes this

you can use script addons like 

you can build rules here 


your blocked tasks are issue links?

then you could use a rule like this

when the link changes to done, then it changes his links to status done
