Use condition with Set Field Value of Linked Issues Function


I am using the "Set Field Value of Linked Issues" Post Function to set a field on subtasks when a parent issue is transitioned.

It works fine without a condition.

I tried to have a condition which only updates the subtasks if they are not closed.

I added this as a condition != "Closed"

The problem is that as soon as this returns false, it stops executing for any subsequent sub tasks. So oif the first sub task it comes to is closed, it doesn't update any of them. If the first one is open, it updates it, but then doesn't update any after it finds a closed one.

I've confirmed with logging that this is the case.

This seems like a bug to me has anyone else come across it? Thanks!
