Auto-Transition for multi workflows

We have a project with 4 workflows (one for each issue type). The project would like the parent issue to auto-transition to s specific status on the creation of the subtask. The problem is, the subtask my come from anyone of the 4 workflows. Using the JIRA Tool Kit plugin, is it possible to define multiple listeners against a single project? The parent issues each have their own Issue Type, but there is only one subtask type for all four Issue Types.

Does anyone have any experience with this? I would appreciate any advice.

Hi Jeanne, I think it's possible and easy too. There's a post function you can add to a transition in every workflow, the problem is that I don't remember if it's part of any plugin or it's from jira originaly. Can you check if you have the Transition parent issue post function?

With that you can add in any transition of the 4 workflows that post function and will make auto-transition the parent issue.

I think it's part of JIRA Misc Workflow Extensions plugin. It's free and very useful. Check here:

Doh! Sometimes it is the most obvious solution that escapes view.

Thank you Ramiro.
