How to trigger a transition when al sub-tasks are resolved


Is there a way to trigger a transition in the parent issue when ALL sub-tasks are resolved.

I added a post function in the sub-task workflow to trigger the transition 931 ( let's say) over the resolve step.

Then went to the parent workflow and edited transition 931 with a sub-task blocking condition. Just to make sure that the transition happens only when all Sub-tasks are resolved.

It doesn't work as I expect.

Any idea ? I use jira 5.1.3.

Thanks, Vishnu.

Thanks a lot Norman.

But, is there any work around in JIRA 5.1.3 ? I not that keen to install plugins.

Without a plugin or writing your own code, no.

I can understand your concern about installing plugins because it makes things harder to upgrade, could add instability and adds more complexity, but Jira is designed to be extended so not all features will be in Jira by default. I took some plugins off my environment for some of these reasons.

This is one of the few plugins I think you should consider using after doing your own homework.

1) How long has the plugin been around and being maintained?
2) Does the plugin author respond to issues found in his plugin?
3) How many users have downloaded it and what they say about the plugin?
4) How active is the plugin author involved in the Atlassian ecosystem (or Jira itself)?
5) Does the plugin solve your immediate issue and provide potential future solutions?
6) Is the cost of the plugin worth the functionality it provides?
7) Whatever other questions, I should have asked but could not think of at this time.

Thank you for your time.

I am sorry, not a validator in the workflow but a condition will do the trick. It will look like this:

All sub-tasks must have one of the following statuses to allow parent issue transitions: Resolved

I think he asks for somekind of automation, so the parent issue automoves to a new status ie. all subtasks are approved then the parent can be moved to "Ready" automaticly.

Yup, thats what I look for. You have got any workaround ?

Build a validator in the workflow, which allows you to move forward, only if all subtask have reached their ``resolved state.

I need this to happen automatically. Also, I don't there an equivalent validator for this.
