Is there any script that I can run to automatically close a sub-task once the story is closed?

We are currently using the sub-task issue type for our Test Cases relating to specific stories. Is there any builtin script or other script that I can run that would automatically close a sub-task once the story is closed?

I have found how to close a story if all sub-tasks have been completed but need the opposite funtionality if possible.

Currently using JIRA version 5.10

Provided you have the appropriate transitions available, you can use the CLI Plugin for JIRA to add a post function to the close transition to run something similar to the following:

--action runFromIssueList --search "parent = %issue_key% and status not in (Closed)" --common "-a progressIssue --issue @issue@ --step \"Close issue\" --resolution Fixed "

I don't have the CLI Plugin. Is there another alternative?

Thank you,

You can try Jamie Echlin's Script Runner plugin which has some built in postfunctions to autoclose subtasks.

I'll give it a try.

Thanks so much.
