Hi @Eswar ,

I understood that when all subtasks are moved to Completed(done) status you want the parent status to get updated as Completed(done).

If that is your scenario you can achieve this with the help of Automation for Jira app you will be able to configure your requirement and please find below sample rule for your reference.

Hope the information helps.


Hi @Ravya Mutyala _Appfire_ ,


When all sub tasks are moved to Approved status then automatically all are moved to Complete Status ( both parent and sub-tasks) 

Hi @Eswar ,

You may try the below sample for your requirements. Please change In progress to Approved and Done to Completed Status in your requirement.


Hope this helps!


Thank you Very Much Ravya for your help.

I have done slight modification in rule to achieve my requirement.
