Set parent priority to highest sub-task priority

I would like the priority of the parent issue to be equal to the highest priority of any of its sub-tasks.  Does anyone know if there's a way to achieve this?

Thanks.

Not without a bit of code.

First you need to decide when you want to do this - check when a sub-task is created/updated?  The parent?  Both?  Or some other time?  Also, do you want to let the users overwrite it?

Then you'll need to write a listener or post-function to scan all the subtasks and adjust the parent if necessary.  (I'd use the script runner to do that)
