Hello, 

Is there anyway to use the regular conditions between statues to stop an Epic from moving if child/subtask tickets are still open? Using Jira Software Cloud. 

Thank you!

Hi Heather - Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

I think you will need an add-on such as JMWE or ScriptRunner to be able to do custom validations. 

There is a regular condition to prevent the closing of a parent if sub-tasks are still open, but not for Epics and their children.

I think you would probably need to use Scriptrunner for this. 

Adding a scripted validator that iterates through the Epic's linked issues and makes sure they are all in a "done" status category is the only way I can think of to make it work.
