Prioritize and link subtasks


is there a way to set an order that has to be followed by subtasks' workflows?

I mean, if I have a list of activities (sub-issues) related to a task, is there a way to allow user to set done an activity only if another specified activity is already done.


Thank you in advance

Hi Arianna,

Have you tried to use JIRA workflow validators? For instance, let's say when a list of activities is finished, you add a value to a given field. In this case, you can use the Fields Required validator, so the transition can only be executed if that field has a value.

Hope this helps.
