Hi Vishali,

You basically need a workflow post-function plugin. You can write a jira plugin or use Jamie Echlins script runner plugin.

Here is a similar example in the documentation found in script runner plugin.

You might also find the following plugins related to sub-tasks useful. Take a look

I have used this with just the id changed in setAction (5), it worked as I expected.

Thank you, Bhushan and Jamie.

You could use a JCLI post function from CLI Plugin for JIRA with something like the following action:

--action runFromIssueList --search "parent = %parent_key% and status = Closed" --common "--action progressIssue --issue @issue@  --step ""Reopen issue"" " --server %base_url% --user automation --password ***
