When a developer starts a task for a story I would like the story to be automatically moved to in progress.
Is this possible?
In my picture I would expect the in progress points to be 4, as Test-2 has been started.
Or is my mental model for this wrong?
The JIRA Misc Workflow Extensions plugin has a post-function that does exactly this, called Transition Parent Issue. See at: https://innovalog.atlassian.net/wiki/display/JMWE/Post-functions#Post-functions-15-TransitionParentIssue%28newin2.1%29
Simply add that transition to the Start Progress transition on the workflow for your sub-tasks, point it to the Start Progress transition id in your parent workflow, and you should see your parent issues (Stories in your case) start progress when the first task is moved in progress.
