Is it possible with JQL to find issues where no linked issues have been recently updated?

I'm trying to find a way through JQL (and possibly with the help of ScriptRunner and/or JQL Tricks) where, for example, the filter would return all issues in a project where no "is blocked by" issue that has been linked has been updated over a certain time frame (i.e. 1 week).

Say issue EXAMPLE-123 has 3 "is blocked by" links. If those 3 issues all haven't been updated in a week, the filter would return EXAMPLE-123 in the query. The filter I am looking for would return all issues that meet this criteria.

My starting point so far is the following query that I have tried through JQL Tricks, but it's doesn't seem to be working:

issue in linkedIssuesInQuery("updated <= -1w","is blocked by")

You have to use the opposite link direction. The issues that are not updated has "blocks" link with EXAMPLE-123.

Can you try the following?

issue in linkedIssuesInQuery("updated &lt;= -1w","blocks")

The ScriptRunner equivalent is:

issueFunction in linkedIssuesOf("updated &gt; -1w", blocks)

but in both cases I don't think it's what you want. Both will find the blocking issues where the blocked issue has not been updated in a week.

The hard part of your question is the all, ie where all the blocking issues have not been updated in a week. You could just look for the blocking issues that haven't been updated in over a week, which would be:

issueFunction in linkedIssuesOf("", blocks) and updated &gt; -1w

To do it like you want you could write your own jql function, or add a script field which contained the date of the last update of any blocking issues, and query on that.

How to manage many similar workflows?

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 ...
