Closing parent ticket will also close the sub tasks

Is it possible when closing out the parent ticket, the sub-tasks will also be closed as well?

If it's possible, how to do it?

Yeah, I just closed that, sorry.

You will need code to do this. I'd usually recommend a listener that picks up a "close" event and scans the sub-tasks and triggers the necessary transitions if they're in the right state.

I'm 99% certain that the scripting plugin can be used to construct this process. See
