How do I set up moving a parent story when all it's subtasks are done?


I'd like to set up a rule to move a Story to a certain status when all it's subtasks are moved to done, is there a way to do this?

I've tried playing with "For subtasks" and "For Parent" but to no avail.

I'm not that experienced with JQL, on my long list of things to learn!

Thanks in advance.

You need the Pro version of the plugin

1. You need to create a rule

2. You create Branch Rule/Related Issues and choose "Parent" in the types of related issues.

3. Then you add Related issues codition for the created branch, choose subtask all match specified JQL.

4. Enter JQL status = closed

5 Choose Transition issue condition and choose the right status

That is fantastic, thanks very much!
