Jira Kanban. Make Task issue unable move to Done field until its sub-tasks has moved into Done field Edited

I am very new in jira software, so i need some help

So, question is on the summary.

Why i want to do it?

Because i want to make an automation, when the parent task is done, another paranet and its subtasks move into ToDo list from a backlog, and i want to be sure, that until all small tasks have been done, another task wouldnt start.

Hi @Mikhail Puzhay-Chereda ,


You can do this within the workflow, using a condition. 

  1. Go to Jira Administration > Issues > Workflows
  2. Find the workflow associated with your project(s) and 'Edit
  3. If you don't already have a transition, you'll need to create onetransition.PNG
  4. Link this transition between your last status and the done status
  5. Once this is complete, go into 'Conditions' > Add condition and select the "Sub-Task Blocking Condition"
  6. Click Add and select your 'Done' Transition

This condition will validate all sub-tasks are closed prior to moving your story / task to the Done status. You should see a condition stating "All sub-tasks must have one of the following statuses to allow parent issue transitions: DONE"


Is this what you were looking for? I hope you find this helpful!

That works! Thank you very much!
