The app was completely overhauled, and so was the documentation: Jira Workflow Toolbox (Server/Data Center) Home

Features used to implement the example

Example: Moving story to "In Progress" when one of its sub-tasks is moved to "In Progress" (Transition issues)

A sub-task for a story is moved from "To Do" to "In Progress". The workflow then automatically moves the story from "To Do" to "In Progress".

Insert Transition issues post-function into transition from "To Do" to "In Progress" in sub-task's workflow with the following configuration:

Text to be parsed is: %{00042} = "To Do"

Note that:

  • %{00042} is field code for field "Parent's issue status"
  • If you have a condition or a validator in parent's workflow's transition from "To Do" to "In Progress" that blocks the transition depending on the status of sub- task's you might need to check option Delayed execution in order to try the execution of the transition once the sub-task has completed its current transition.
