Hi @shahwanfi ,

I believe this is what you're looking for:

issue.subTaskObjects.every{it.get("issuetype").name != "Approval" || it.get("status").name in ["Approved", "Cancelled"]}

Thank David

It partially working 

in my case I have an sub task type "Approval" if any of these approvals are not approved or cancelled then it should be fail. (this is working fine)

issue.subTaskObjects.every{it.get("issuetype").name == "Approval" && it.get("status").name in ["Approved", "Cancelled","Conditional Approval"]}

However when i created another type or sub tasks under the same issue it fail as it is checking the other sub tasks statuses not only the approval sub task. I need it to check only approval sub tasks and status.

@shahwanfi did you try the code I offered, which is different from the one you seem to have tried? 

My Apologize, it is working fine.

Thanks for your support  

Hi @shahwanfi ,

Do you mean all sub-tasks with issue type name as "Approval" have to be in specific statuses? Or is "Approval" any other customfield value?



Hi @Anjali Rao 

yes type name is approval and in approved status. David solutions' words fine
