Is there a way to make issues change status automatically based on linked issue status?

I've created a new issue type called 'requirement' which may be linked (in a 'depends on' link) to one or more user stories.

When all the user stories that a 'requirement' depends on are resolved, I want the requirement to automatically change its status to resolved as well.

Is there any way to do this?

You want JIRA Workflow Toolbox; recently tried it out and it works great.

Please advise me which post function we need to use.

Hey, I already provided it in my answer - I'll put it here again. The instructions state what post functions you need to use and how. :)

Thansk this is great. I am able to fix it .. but run into one more issue. one feature can mapped to mutiple stories. I want to excedue the post function only all stories are resloved.

is there a way to place a validation ?

Hey there,

Yes, you could use either "Condition on linked issues" or "Validation on linked issues"; you add them to the transitions in the feature workflow to prevent it from being transitioned unless the linked issues you dictate meet the criteria you select. Please note that it's based off of status, though, and not resolution (hopefully it still meets your needs). :)

You will have to write a workflow post function that finds the dependent issues and progress them in the workflow.

Which post function we need to select ? is there any existing one ?

It only possible with the script. We already worked the same with scripting..........................
