Build a Filter to identify Open Blockers of issues in the current Sprint.

Barry Burkinshaw February 28, 2024

I'm trying to create a Jira board Filter to identify open issues that Block other open issues in the current Sprint.
~ If an issue WAS a Blocker but is now Done, then disregard. 
~ If an issue does not block another issue in the current Sprint, then disregard.  I'm not interested if a currently open story only blocks some issue that's not in the current Sprint. 

I expect the solution to use these terms in some fashion but have not figured out how to nest or relate them: 
1. Currently open Blockers:      issueLinkType = Blocks and statusCategory != Done
2. Issues in current Sprint:        sprint in openSprints()

Bullet 1 above successfully filters to identify open stories on the current Jira board if the open story is tagged as a Blocker to any other item. 
However, all items with a blocker relationship continue to display among the results even if the open blocked story is not in the current Sprint.  I only want to see Blockers to work in the current sprint. 

Any ideas will be appreciated.

How are your people telling Jira that one issue blocks another?

We use Jira's Linked issues - as Blocks, Blocked By, etcimage.png
