How to transition parent issue after all subtasks are done?

I can't find any sample how to achieve this using JIRA Misc Workflow Extensions. Could someone please provide some Groovy expression for this to work?

Hi Sven,

you actually don't need Groovy for that. You need to use the Transition Parent issue post-function in conjunction with the Subtask blocking Condition:

  • on the workflow of the subtasks (which can be shared with the parent issues if needed), you put the Transition Parent issue post-function on the "Done" transition to trigger the "Done" transition on the parent (don't worry, if the issue isn't a subtask and thus has no parent, the post-function will do nothing)
  • on the workflow of the parent issues, you put the Subtask blocking condition on the "Done" transition, specifying that all subtasks must be in the "Done" status

Hope this helps,

David
