I am trying to setup RTC process configuration to achieve "Auto resolution" or "Auto Completion" of parent work item if all of its linked children are marked resolved/ closed/ complete.
Is there a way to achieve this?

  • A work item of type "Story" is created to depict a user scenario.
  • This Story has 2 work item as its children one each for coding and testing.
  • Would like to move the State of Story to "ready for review" as soon as both coding and testing work items is marked closed/ complete.

there is no builtin mechanism to do this. you will have to write a server side extension

I think Ralph has a sample of this on his blog
