Prevent issue resolution when associated issues are still open

Dale Dean I'm New Here Sep 11, 2017

How do you configure Jira to check for any associated issues are open prior to moving to a done or completed status?

Example. I am using an issue type of Risk and associate it with a Story,Task,etc.  I would not want a story,ask,etc to move to a completed-done status until all associated Risks have been mitigate or an separate approval has been made to allow.

thanks you

You can put a condition that all subtasks must be closed, but not another issue out of the box. There may be a plugin or scripting may do it.

thank you!

Sometimes it's useful to prevent the closure of a risk until all of the mitigation tasks have been completed. I wrote a blog post about that last year: Using sub-tasks with risks. The article has some stuff that's specific to our product, but the principle is generally applicable.
