Can I make "All Children Resolved" precondition apply on to a certain work item (Epics)?

Alexander Reyes (197) | asked May 14 '20, 3:57 p.m.
I wanted to configure Epic type work items to have a precondition such that all children must be resolved in order to close/resolve. I don't want this precondition to impact other work item types, for example Stories and Tasks. Is this capability possible? Thanks in advance for any comments, suggestions etc.,

I already considered using "Depends On" link type where I don't want this precondition to apply and I'll configure as such, but only as a last resort.

 As far as I can tell, the precondition works for all work item types, if configured.

If you would want this to only work for specific work item types, you would have to create a custom advisor. This advisor would have to check the type and could then either steal the code of the existing advisor, or call it.
