I have followed the below mentioned guides before posting this question.
Still, the parent story doesn't close when I close all the subtask.
I am not sure what am I missing.
Can somebody please help?
Thanks for the comments.
Sorry for not providing the screenshots.
Conditions specified in the parent function ( making it hidden, and not closing it until all sub tasks are closed)

3. Post functions in the transition of sub task
The problem is with the default Hide transition from user condition. It does not work with these other post-functions. Misc Workflow Extensions includes it's own "hidden" condition, but it is disabled by default in JIRA Cloud. I don't have a proper workaround for that right now.
The following configuration works just fine.
Parent Workflow –
Child Workflow –
The post function will fire when the parent issue is transitioned; not when the sub-task is transitioned. Once you close the sub-task, the condition is met on the parent issue, but it will not automatically transition. This is not possible in Cloud.
Thanks or offering the help,
I have added the Post-Functions and Conditions screenshots.
I don't agree with the many of the comments that it is not possible to achieve what I am trying to do here. As mentioned in the two links, I have already installed the Misc Workflow Extensions. I just thought that it would be a precondition for this issue and never thought of mentioning it.
The extensions are preinstalled but not enabled by default. I have enabled them so that the other options such as transitioning of the parent issue become available
I have messed up the order of images above.
Hence I am posting it again here:
The transition id in parent workflow (I am using the Close Issue [hidden, only from program ] trnasition)

Conditions in the transition of parent workflow. (we only hide the transition and make sure that the parent is closed after all sub-tasks are closed.
Post functions in the transition of parent workflow (there is nothing mentioned to transition the children as we want parent to get closed based on subtasks, not the other way round)
