The rule system is the core of Auto State. These rules define how states should be updated, and when.

Parent typeThis is the work item type of the parent relation. E.g the work item type that should be updated.
Transition stateThe transitioned state for the rule to trigger on (When work item type changes to this) state
Parent not in stateDo not trigger the rule if the parent work item is in this state
Parent target stateThis is the state that the parent work item should transition to
Children lookupTake child work items into consideration when processing the rule. See Children lookup for more information.
