Jira agile sprint finalization

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Configuring sub-tasks

I'm using a another status for subtasks named 'Failed'.

I mapped the status on the workflow to the 'Done' category.

Now, when I try to complete a sprint and there is a story (in Done status) that has a subtask in 'Failed', Jira will not let me complete the sprint claiming that there are incomplete subtasks in it.

Am i missing something or is Jira Agile looking for the explicit 'Done' status of subtasks ?

The exact status isn't too important, and nor is the status category.

Try reconfiguring the board, putting the "failed" status into the far-right hand column on the board.

Thanks !!!, works.
