Update resolution of parent issue when a subtask is created.


I want to update the parent resolution (for eg : "On Hold" ) If a sub task is created.

It would be even more nice if the same can be updated when all the subtasks for the issue are resolved.

Thanks in advance....

You'll need a spot of code to do that. A (script runner) listener or post-function can catch the creation of sub-tasks and update the parent resolution.

Be warned though - setting the resolution on the parent issue will make Jira consider it completed - that might not be what you actually want.

Similarly for "all the subtasks are resolved" - catch them being resolved in a script and update the parent if appropriate.

Thanks for the solution..... But I am very new to JIRA Administration..... Could you please guide me on the script runner... Is it a plugin which I have to download and where exactly in JIRA I have to do it...

Thanks in advance...



Use the "universal plugin manager" to add the plugin, and there's a link to the documentation for it in the descriptor when you find it in the marketplace.
