Validator for linked issues


I need to add a validator to a transition so issues can only be moved to "Pending" status if there is at least 1 linked issue with "is blocked by" type.

So I chose this option here, but I'm afraid that does not solve the problem, because there is no other option in the next step.

What is the better way to accomplish this validation?

Hi @Gui Ávila ,

looks like you'll need a validator based on a Jira expression like

issue.links.filter(link => == "Blocks" && link.direction == "inward").length >= 1

To do so, you'll need a workflow app capable of adding those Jira expressions as a validator like Jira Workflow Toolbox (

An overview of apps in this area can be found here:
