Is it possible not to close a story depending upon priority of a subtask.


If a story has a sub-task with high priority and still in "In progress" state , i want a workflow that story cannot be closed until the sub-task is done. ( Note: If sub-task has low priority the parent can be closed irrespective of sub-task status).

Can someone help me out with this. Thanks

You would need an add-on for it like Power Scripts or Adaptivist ScriptRunner.

You could write your own validator for the Close transition in the Story issue type. The validator would check all your requirements and if your requirements are not fulfilled, your validator would cancel the transition.

If you use Power Scripts, you can find examples here:

Okay. Thanks for the reply. will try script runner
