Query to pull all the "is blocked by" tickets under an Epic


Looking for a query to pull all the "is blocked by" tickets under an associated Epic.  I don't have any add-ons available to me so I can't use the suggested syntax of "haslinks" or "issuelinktype". 

Thank you.

Hello @Marion Vita Lee 

  • "Epic Link" = EN-2 and issueLinkType = "is blocked by"

EN-2 is the epic issue number. Please let me know if this works.



Thanks @Thomas B.  Unfortunately, the query didn't work.  I'm receiving this error message --> "Field 'issueLinkType' does not exist or you do not have permission to view it."

I have the right permission so I think the existence of "IssueLinkType" at the Epic level may not exist.  I can find the blocked tickets if I query at the ticket level but I need to grab all the blocked tickets under an Epic.

@Marion Vita Lee that feature should be available from the story / task level. After looking into it, I could not find another way to Bulk Change, Would it be possible to add Epic Link to your story view, run the Bulk Change and then remove the Epic Link?
