When using the Link Issue feature, do specific Link types prevent a Sprint from being completed if all linked issues are not Done?
Multiple development Stories are completed in the current Sprint and appear in the right-most column of the Scrum Board. These Stories are linked to a single QA Test Story that will be completed in a future Sprint. When Completing the current Sprint, will we encounter an error because of the incomplete linked Stories? Does the link type (i.e. blocked by, relates to, is tested by) affect whether the Sprint can be Completed?
Hi @Steve_G ~ in addition to Mikael's answer, linked issues would only "prevent" (warn) you from closing a sprint if that linked issue is also in the sprint you're trying to close. Or if you had workflow /automation that specifically prevented it (unlikely)...
No, linked issues will not prevent you from completing a sprint. It is only subtasks that have not been moved to the furtherest right column if the parent issue has that will prevent you from completing the sprint.
