Can I prevent issues from being closed while the sub-tasks are still open in a Team Managed Workflow

I've setup basic workflow in Team managed workflow which has basic transition rules. (not advanced transitions with properties, triggers, validators etc..)


Can I set the workflow to not allow the Issue to be transitioned to a particular status, while it has subtasks that are not 'Done'?

Or is it only available for particular workflow types?

Hi @Bill Quinn and welcome to the community!

As you know, team managed projects have less capability so you don't have the same condition logic you would have with company managed projects.  However, you could do something with a combination of the transition rule "Check an issue's field" and a couple automation rules:

Create a custom field (a checkbox should be fine) 


Check the box when a new subtask is created

  • TRIGGER: Issue Created
  • CONDITION: Issue Type = Subtask
  • BRANCH: Parent
    • ACTION: Edit Issue (check the field created above)


Uncheck the box when last subtask has been moved to Done

  • TRIGGER: Issue Transitioned to Done
  • CONDITION: Issue Type = Subtask
  • BRANCH: Parent
    • CONDITION: All Subtasks status = Done
    • ACTION: Edit Issue (Uncheck the field created above)


  • Check an issue's field = Your custom field = False

A great help Mark... Thankyou!
