JIRA Agile: Turn Off Global Auto Transition of User Stories once Sub-Tasks Are Complete

Is this possible somewhere? It used to be exposed when it was Greenhopper but it doesn't seem to be available now that it's a core component of JIRA.

I've got default workflows in place that do not fit into the standard "all sub-tasks are done? ok great, transition the parent story to done. Oh, I can't? Pop up a window stating as much as have the user click acknowledge".

Turning off that default global transition for all workflows would be ideal.

I turned this off by editing the header.jsp in the atlassian-JIRA  . See this article

 

Added this snippet

<script type="text/javascript">
try{
GH.Dialogs.CompleteParentDialog.showDialog = function(issue, transitions, columnData) {};
}
catch(err) {
}
</script>

Hi Jake,

Does this script demand a script-runner or some other dependency? Have added it to the top of header.jsp (JIRA_APPLICATION_DIR/atlassian-jira/includes/decorators/aui-layout/header.jsp) and restarted the server, but we still see the popup dialog..

There were no other dependencies at the time I used that solution. The solution itself is a bit of a dirty hack. If the version of JIRA or JIRA agile were different than the version I had been using last March I suspect Atlassian easily could have changed something internally that would have caused it not to work anymore.

I would echo, the solution really shouldn't be very hard for them to technically implement  and now that the agile code base is no longer a plugin but part of a core product maybe they may be more likely to change it. Since the original issue has been closed maybe we need to craft a new one that better addresses how it breaks team's agile process and definition of done to move a main line story to done, just because a set of subtasks is done.Once the story's tasks are done it should be accepted before being moved to done

As a note, I've seen these issues recorded over the past 1.5 years:

https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/GHS-8770

https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/156616/suppress-update-parent-issue-pop-up

https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/100653/how-to-prevent-the-update-parent-dialog

However I haven't seen anything else so I'm hoping something has come up to provide resolution and it wasn't tracked, or someone has developed a plugin that can do this.

Hey there,

this option should be in the Misc Workflow Extension Plugin if I'm not mistaken, get a trial and see yourself smile
It should be definitely be able with ScriptRunner and a little bit of scripting.

Hope this can help.

Wow, another example of Atlassian totally deprioritizing a simple win that would remove a major annoyance. How hard could it be to add an admin checkbox to disable this feature and they won't even keep the feature open. I have such a love/hate relationship with Atlassian and their forever-ignored-bugs. 

It's a feature not a bug... :P
