How to prevent closing of issues with (open/progress/reopen/resolved) Sub-Tasks

How can we define a rule that prevents a "Story" from being closed while there are still Sub-tasks that have a state != from closed. The same for issue type "Bug" and "Task"

Regarding to Epic: How to prevent an Epic from being put to epic state "done" and JIRA state "closed" as long as the child Stories + Sub-tasks are not closed.

For the second, you will need custom dev work and it is not possible in JIRA Cloud.
