How restrict issue type status change when linked items are in pending state.


Is there any way I can restrict changing the status of a user story to a certain status when the linked issue types are not in Done state..

Here I want to ensure a restriction in changing the status to UAT from QA when any linked issue types (Test/Bugs/sub-task) are not complete (Done).

Hello @Hari Sridharala 


You could do this by adding a Condition on to the Transition of the workflow your Story is using. If they're considered sub-task's you could try the sub-task blocking condition. Or if you happen to have add ons like JWT they could help add conditions based on linked issue statuses. 

Or similarly you could use a Validator such as one from JSU to confirm that all linked issues are in a correct status before allowing the transition to complete. 

Really condition and validator are where you would want to restrict this part of your workflow.


Hope this helps out.
