Copy field "status" from subtasks to their parent Issues ( Story or Task )

Copy field "status" from subtasks to their parent Issues ( Story or Task ) when subtasks are transitionated to another column, for example :

Story : "As  Physician I can log in my application" -> Status = Ready to Do
Subtask¹ : "Configure log in" -> Status = Doing
Subtask² : "Configure User access role" -> Status = Ready to Do

I want to change Story status to "Doing" when at least one of my subtasks are at "Doing".

For that, you'll need a third party app (add-on) such as JMWE, JSU, ScriptRunner, etc. 

Using JMWE (our app), you'd use the Transition Parent Issue post-function on the sub-task transitions to trigger the appropriate transition in the parent issue when a sub-task is transitioned. 

Note that, in Jira, you cannot just change the Status field, you need to trigger a transition that takes the issue to the desired status.
