"worst child" rule based on status for Epic

Hi All,

I have created an Epic and associate to it few stories, tasks and bugs. also created sub-tasks which are associate to their related tasks.

is there an option in jira to set the Epic status based on its "worst child" status?

i.e, if all linked issues to that Epic are in Done state but only one issue type is In Progress state then i would like the Epic will inherit the In Progress status as well since not all work as been done.

Thanks!
