Is it possible to have subtasks skip certain statuses within a jira workflow?

Hello,

We want to force our top tasks through design->spec review statuses. However, we have subtasks that we don't have the need to transition through a design and spec review status. Is it possible to have these subtasks skip the design and spec review statuses?

If you only want some subtasks to skip statuses you'll need to rework the flow and put in checks for issue type and some kind of flag you set such as Bypass=yes. If no subtask needs to go through the steps just create another workflow without the statuses and update the scheme to assign the new workflow to subtasks.

Thanks, Joe. I went with the 2nd option of "no subtask needs to go through the steps just create another workflow without the statuses and update the scheme to assign the new workflow to subtasks."
