Connect two different workflows

Hello All,

Presently am using two different Sub-tasks A, B.

A work flow :  TODO - Inprogress - Done  ( assignee  X , reporter : Y)

B workflow : TODO - Inprogress -Done.   ( assignee  M  , reporter : N )

my question :  Sub-task A is in DONE status ,   is there any possibilities to inform automatically to the other person (assigne  M ) like validations , postfunctions .

after thet B workflows will start . 


Thank you

A post-function could be constructed to do something, although it might look a little odd to the user.

You'll need an add-on such as automation or ScriptRunner to do this, but a post-function could

  • Be placed on the in-progress -> done transition for sub-tasks
  • Read the parent to look for other sub-tasks (and any other business logic you need)
  • If it finds any in "To do" then, either
    • email the assignee
    • auto-transition it to in-progress (and let the notification scheme send the email)
