Create an validator or condition to force all Epic child issues before closing it

Tiago Pereira July 18, 2023

I would like to create an validator or condition to force all the child issues (in this case Task) associated w/ the Epic parent ticket, before closing this one, is this possible?

I am able to use the rule of linked issues condition for subtasks but not child issue.

 

Note is for Jira-Cloud

Hi @Tiago Pereira 

You can use the Linked Issues Status Condition for that, have you tried?

Tiago Pereira July 18, 2023

Hello @David Fischer indeed the Linked issue status condition works for the Epic subtasks, but the the rule doesn't seem to apply to the child issues, in this case Task.

 

Please check the photos for better understanding

Under Issue Link Type, you need to pick "is Epic of".

Hello @David Fischer it works, but I have to 2 different conditions to cover both subtasks & child issues:

- Child issues use Epic of

- Subtasks issues use is parent of

 

I guess because both have different relationships right?

Correct. Unfortunately, Jira Expressions, which is the underlying technology that is used to build custom Conditions in third-party apps such as JMWE, doesn't currently support Jira Cloud's new unified issue hierarchy. It still separates the parent/subtasks relationship from the Epic/Story relationship.

For your use case, you'll need to use two conditions, one for each link type.

Hi Tiago,

You will need an add-on such as JMWE or ScriptRunner to be able to do that. 

Tiago Pereira July 18, 2023

I have that available, could you please support?

Which on are you using? I have limited experience with code like that for JWME, and none with ScriptRunner.

Hi @Tiago Pereira 

It is now possible to test against all direct children of the issue - regular & subtasks in one condition/validator. For this particular case we developed Linked Issues Validator, which is part of the Workflow Building Blocks for Jira free app.

Here’s an example of how it looks:

I hope it will help.

Cheers
