Story status is changed even if not allowed when move sub-task to Done status

Given: There is a story with a sub-task on Active Spring Board.

When: I move the sub-task to Done status, Jira asks me if I want to change status of the story to Done too.

Then: I click "Cancel" but the story status is changed to Done anyway

Hi Dzmitry - Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

That seems to be a bug I have heard about before - that once you click on a transition, then it is going to perform the transition, even with a Cancel. 

So you might put a validator on the transition to check to see if the field you are putting the Yes in has a value or not. That way the transition can't complete if the value is not Yes. 

Hi John! Thank you!

Appreciate your advice! Could you please navigate me to documentation how can I "put a validator on the transition"?

Sure - Go to Settings > Issues > Workflows

Search for the workflow that needs to be changed and select edit. 

Then change the view to the Diagram view. 

Click on the line (this is the transition) going to the Done status.

This will pop up a box on the right side. There you can click on Validator.
