We recently updated our workflow with some automation and QOL improvements.
I have created a custom subtask call "QA subtask", this subtask only differs from a normal/generic subtask by one field called "Parent status". As you might think this field was added so that when all the other subtask are done, we can update this field to "Ready for testing" and an email is sent to the QA dep to let them know of the status change.
Basically I want to do something similar to:
Also, I am open to suggestions if you think there is a better way to inform QA.
I am in the process of trying some that are available before I narrow down to the one that suite best my needs.
Ate the moment I had lots of success with "JSU Automation Suite for Jira" until I got to this automation.
I also installed "Automation for Jira" which seems to be more flexible but didn't quite figure out how to use it for this case.

Note that the automation implementation is new to us and all the mention plugin are in trials so I am open to suggestions.
And I am on a server.
I would personally recommend trying out JMWE, but I'm biased (I work for Innovalog).
A simple approach would be to:
This is one approach out of many possible approaches. For example, you could replace the Parent status custom field with a "Parent Status" field type from JMCF so you don't have to update the field manually (it will always show the parent issue's status). You could also do without the extra "Ready for testing" Status, or without creating two sub-tasks types and just relying on the sub-task Summary, but that would require a little scripting (a couple of lines of code in total using JMWE).
It’s very important to have access to the workflow process from anywhere. Especially if you manage the work of others. There is no difference whether you’re out of office, or drive a ca...
