Closing a story in Kanban Board after all sub-tasks are done

Please for your advise on the following situation:

I have created a Kanban board with the following structure:

  • Epics
  • Stories
  • Sub Tasks

Should I move the Story in the "Columns" (In Progress, Waiting, Done) or  just the sub tasks?

When I move to "Done" all the sub-tasks of a story, the story will be considered "Closed" then automatically?

In case I do not move to column "In Progress" the Story but only the Sub-tasks, this story will be considered to have status in progress or not?

Thank you in advance for your help

Hello @Spyros Tzortzis  Welcome

Great work on establishing the Kanban board with the structure.

to get the flow - you should move the Story along with the sub task.

Only when all the sub task are moved to done the story will get done. - even though they are linked, they dont move simultaneously.

Its like when the first sub task is moved to In progress you should also move the related story to in progress (because that is what it means :) )

You can automate this case, if your project needs it -- check the Jira Automation

For more details on how Jira Kanban Board work check the documentation 

Hope this help you.
