Am using the CREATE ON TRANSITION plugin to spawn some sub-tasks off the parent JIRA.Workflow A creates a sub-task calling Workflow BIs there a way you know of that, for instance: Workflow B needs to kick something back to Workflow A, so that when the STATUS (or resolution) of Workflow B is changed, the STATUS of workflow A 'can be automatically updated depending on the result of workflow B?
The CLI Plugin for JIRA has a post function that can can do any CLI action on JIRA. Although more intended for accessing other systems, it can also run stuff on the local instance including progressIssue which allows you to change the status of any issue. The workflow needs to have the appropriate transition(s) to get it to where you want including providing all the required fields needed along the way.
It is possible to restrict the progression of an issue through workflow depending on the status of the issue's Sub-Tasks. For example, you might need to restrict an issue from being resolved until all of its Sub-Tasks are resolved. To achieve this, you would create a custom workflowand use the Sub-Task Blocking Condition on the workflow transitions that are to be restricted by the Sub-Tasks' status.
I don't think this is possible to transition a parent's issue to a specific status depending on the sub-task; just because both the sub-task and parent issues are using different workflows.
I was about to suggest the JIRA Misc Workflow Extensions plugin (using the Transition parent issue post function), but that would only work if the sub-task and parent issues are using the same workflow.
