Hi @Harish Kumar,

There is built-in post-function available in scriptrunner called "Transition parent when all subtasks are resolved"

and below script also can do the same for you


import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue
import com.atlassian.jira.user.ApplicationUser
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueInputParametersImpl
import com.atlassian.jira.bc.issue.IssueService

def currentUser = ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext().getLoggedInUser()
def issueManager = ComponentAccessor.issueManager
IssueService issueService = ComponentAccessor.getIssueService()
def linkManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueLinkManager()
def searchService = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(SearchService.class)
def actionId = 41 //41 is my final state transition ID

def transitionValidationResult
def transitionResult

if(issue.getIssueType().name == "Sub-task"){
def allDone = true
ApplicationUser user = issue.getAssignee()
def parent = issue.getParentObject()
parent.getSubTaskObjects()?.each { subtask ->
if(subtask.getStatus().name == "Unresolved" && subtask != issue)
allDone = false
transitionValidationResult = issueService.validateTransition(currentUser,, actionId,new IssueInputParametersImpl())
if (transitionValidationResult.isValid()) {
transitionResult = issueService.transition(currentUser, transitionValidationResult)
if (transitionResult.isValid())
{ log.warn("Transitioned issue $issue through action $actionId") }
{ log.warn("Transition result is not valid") }
log.warn("The transitionValidation is not valid")




hey @Leo , where should we paste the script you gave above?
