Resolve parent with open subtasks

We'd like to add testing work as sub-tasks of Bugs. When the developer is done implementing they'd Resolve the parent and then the QA person would start their subtask. However, Jira does not allow you to Resolve a parent if any of its subtasks are unresolved. Is there a way to change this?

You might have the subtask blocking condition added on the workflow of Bugs. Can you check after removing that condition?

That was it! Thanks.
