Stop a user moving issues into sprints beyond dependant tasks

Alex B I'm New Here Dec 03, 2017

Hi all,

I have a situation where I have multiple user stories which should occur subsequently. For ease of use, I was wondering if there was any way to configure Jira so as to prevent a user from moving Task A into a sprint after Task B, in a situation where Task A blocks Task B.


Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

This is not possible with JIRA out of the box, nor with any plugin I currently know of. You can't prevent a user from working on story B if A is a prerequisite.
