Activate transitions on Events?

We have an internal process whereby the sub-tasks of a story transition move through our workflow independently, but we would like the story on which they are attached to transition automatically when the sub-tasks have all moved.

Essentially, I'm looking to transition stories or tasks in response to other events. I searched for plugins with no luck, and found the ability to write Listeners based on change events. However, I could not find enough APIs to transition elements in the Java code as documented.

Am I on the right track? Are events / listeners the correct way to implement triggered transitions, or is there a better way to achieve this (or none at all).

Listeners should do the job. You can also write a post function which will keep everything in the workflows itself.

Scriptrunner has a built-in script to do something similar, but only for resolve step. You can look through the code to get some ideas. It is in groovy but the APIs are same.

Thanks, that is a great place for me to start.
