It is possible to create a follow-up action that could trigger the workflow actions of child items.  However, you have to consider some limits:

* The Work Items should be of the same type.
* The Work Items should have the same workflow.
* Might run into problems with other advisors and required fields on the child work items which may interfere.

Robert thank you very much for your answer.

But I would like to know:

Is possible when one relates a child work item to one parent, the status automatically changes the parent element for example resolved when the child is settled?

I believe the same would hold true from a Child Work Item to a Parent Work Item.  Just keep in mind the considerations I mentioned above.

Other Issue to consider:
* You would have to make sure ALL of the OTHER child records where in the resolved state as well.

Here is some example code of what you are attempting:

If you want to program against the RTC/Jazz API, I highly recommend @rschoon's blog. Here are a few posts to get you started:
