You might be able to do something with script runner and subtasks. I have found if you have a really well defined workflow this approach could work for you. There are restrictions though like subtasks cannot be broken down further.
There is a linking approach as well but you need a plugin to assist in maintaining your hierarchy like structure or links hierarchy.
For the general case, either method becomes dubious.
I would like to have a main workflow (like a release workflow) and, when development starts, I would like to be able to spawn as many mini-workflows (in lack of a better name) as the number of main components/services. After development for one component is completed, I would like that workflow to re-enter the main release workflow.
For example, in the main workflow I may have requirements gathering & the main architecture and design tasks. When all these release level tasks are done (main/release level workflow), the component level tasks (i.e. component level workflows, or mini-workflows) for detailed design and development need to start then complete for all the individual components identified in the solution architecture. The same solution could be applied for the QA process.
I would like to have the component level workflows re-enter the release level workflow when completed/done.
Is this functionality possible?
