This is the documentation for JSU for Jira Cloud. If you are using JSU for Jira Server or Data Center, see our Server/Data Center documention.

This sample scenario shows you how simple it is to add a JSU automation rule to your workflow. 

Have you ever forgotten to close your sub-tasks before you close an issue?

Let’s see how we use JSU to automate the task of closing multiple subtasks under a parent issue.

Step 1: Navigate to our project workflow and create a draft

Click Edit to create draft version.

Step 2: Select the transition that we want to trigger the post function

Here, we switch to Text view and then select the ‘Done’ transition.

Step 3: Select Add Post Function to display the list of available post functions

We select the Post Functions tab, then select Add post function.


Step 4: Select the Linked Transition (JSU) post function

We select Linked Transition (JSU), then select Add at the bottom of the page.

Step 5: Configure the post function

We want to transition all subtask to the new transition.

a) Select Parent/Subtask then select The subtask(s) of a parent.

b) Select the project workflow and the transition “Done (21)“ to ensure all subtasks are moved to done.

c) Finally, click Add at the bottom of the page.

Step 6: Publish the workflow

Test the workflow rule

Test the workflow rule

Once we publish the workflow, we want to test the outcome.

  1. We set up an issue and create multiple subtasks in our test project.

  2. We transition the parent issue to done then watch JSU move all subtask statuses to done automatically.
