How do I color an issue from the status of its subtasks?

I am using subtasks to indicate when a defect has been found in a particular story / task. What I want to do is use the status of those tasks to visually highlight to the testers whether a story is ready for test.

Is it possible to use a JQL query to check the status of its subtasks to set the colour of the parent?

Hi David,

You won't be able to do that with bare JQL.

It may be worth taking a look at Adaptavist's Script Runner addon (just a hunch).

Our Structure addon could also help; by putting those stories/tasks in a structure with their sub-tasks underneath them, you can then use an S-JQL query (it works anywhere that JQL is accepted) to match issues that have sub-tasks in a certain status. The query would look something like:

issue IN structure(structureID, "child in [issuetype = sub-task AND status = open]")

 

Cheers,

Robert
