I have a really simple workflow (Open -> In progress -> Done) with transitions in place (no All anywhere) and a single user story broken out into 10 subtasks. I want the first subtask to block all the subsequent ones.
I'm not using any plugins.
Sub task 1 is defined as normal and sits in the Open status column on Acitve Sprint view.
Sub task 2 is set to "Is Blocked By" Sub task 1 but I can drag Sub task 2 to In Progress or Done even though Sub task 1 is still in Open.
Has anyone any ideas about what could be wrong?
JIRA will not block the issues from transitioning
You could do this with scriptrunner plugin.
Write a custom script in the workflow conditions to check if there are linked issues in a certain status.
it's odd that Atlassian would include those link types and not reinforce them. I want to avoid plugins if possible for the time being.
I think that JIRA does block a transition with the default JIRA workflow if I'm not mistaken. I'll try that out and check if there are any conditions in that flow which can do the blocking that I need.
I have multiple projects that use variations of the same base workflow. The variations depend on the requirements of the project or issue type. The variations mostly come in the form of new statuses ...
