I installed the "It Service Desk Workflow" and I saw the button "Block" which set the Issue on "Blocked" status.
I first search there:
But I didn't find any information about that.
My question: what the "Blocked" status does? What is the interest? How to use it?
Thank you very much ^^
Thierry, often times people will use a "Blocked" status for something that has another obstacle before it can be fully completed.
For example: Your team is attempting to build a plugin for JIRA. However, you've realized that your test or development servers are in use by somebody else in the company. You could then put the "Blocked" status on this to imply that currently your hands are tied, or there is another issue that needs to be resolved before you can resume work on the request.
Somebody had requested this become default, and I believe he mentions the use of it (albeit briefly) in his request: JRA-33318
As always, this is something I believe is purely up to the user's/admins needs in workflow. You can use it any way you'd like, but most times this is how I've seen it used.
