Change Status of next task after completion to in progress

Ray Balmeo Cagayon April 7, 2024

Pretty new in Jira and this is actually my second post.

I have successfully created a rule to close a parent status when all the subtasks are done.

What I can configure is how to automate the status of the next subtask.

 

  • Subtask 1  - Done 
  • Subtask 2 -  Transition to In Progress when previous task is done. 
  • Subtask 3 -  To Do.

Hi @Ray Balmeo Cagayon 

How would the rule decide the sequential order of the Sub-tasks?

Are they linked together potentially using "linked issues"? 

There needs to be some relationship between them to allow Automation to find the next Sub-task and move it forward.

@Stephen Wright _Elabor8_ , the subtasks are created using an automation rule as well. When a specific issue is created and certain conditions met, a series of subtask is also created using the automation rule.

Hi @Ray Balmeo Cagayon 

But how do you decide the order of Sub-tasks - and track that A needs to be done before B, etc?

Good Question. The order should be on how they are created on the automation. The keys i can not use since the values changes every time. 

The only way I can think so far is to assign another number field and assign designations into it.

But that means i need to make transition rule for every task.
