How to complete stories in an epic in order?

In every epic there are sets of stories that needs to be done in order. How can I block or restrict those stories so it can be complete one at a time in the right order? 

For example, when story one finishes, story two opens up to be worked on next. trying to prevent users from jumping around in the epic. 

Thank you

Hi @shayan.shahrostambeik ,


We have facing the same issue, could you please share your solution what you have done to achieve this.

Thanks in advance!!



A Support Engineer from Atlassian said:

"At this moment, it is not possible to block the starting of issue #2 based on issue #1 inside an Epic. The suggested modus operandi in this situation is to finish issue #1 first and then create issue #2."
