Transitioning Issues through a workflow based on linked issues. Edited

Need some help with the following scenario... we have Scriptrunner on our Jira server instance and would want to utilize that plugin to achieve this.

We use a parent/child relationship between 2 issue types. Issue Type A is the parent, whereas Issue Type B is the child. We achieve this hierarchy by using the "derivation" link type within the "Linked Issues" field.

What we'd like to happen is, when a developer moves Issue B moves from "To Do" to "In Progress", we'd like Issue A to move to "In Progress" as well. Less administrative work for our teams that way.

I appreciate any help or guidance provided!

Hi Laci,

This isn't an uncommon one, but the library doesn't yet have a script for this exact case.  What we do have is for doing the transitions, and if you replace the "find sub-tasks" loop with the "find linked issues" loop from you should get what you need!
