Updating parent issue with stash trigger on subtask


I have the JIRA Misc workflow extensions plugin installed and it is working well for manual transactions and updating the parent issue. 

The same transaction can also be triggered by a stash trigger, e.g. creating a branch sets the sub task to In progress but it doesn't cause an update to the parent issue.

It is doing all the other post standard functions but not the update parent transaction from this plugin.

Does anyone know if this is a bug or intended behaviour?

I see no reason why it shouldn't work, unless of course there are permission issues. You should check that the user that is used to trigger the subtask transition from Stash has the right to transition the parent issue.

It is a permission issue.  -> The anonymous user does not have permission to perform action on given issue.

But the user isn't anonymous for the sub task and able to transition that one without a problem.

He becomes anonymous for the parent task

And what is the user that is used to transition the subtask?

It looks like the current user is not set properly during the transition - com.atlassian.jira.workflow.WorkflowFunctionUtils#getCallerUser returns null. You should open a support request with Atlassian and ask them to invite Innovalog to the issue.
