Please tell me how to block an epic until the task inside is completed? Tried it through wоrkflow "if". Tried through related tasks. Does not work.

Hi @Константин Канивец , by “blocked” do you mean you wish to prevent the epic’s Status field from being transitioned to done? Assuming so unfortunately that capability doesn’t exist OOTB. You can achieve with something likeJMWE  or Scriptrunner.

OOTB the one thing you could consider is to ‘reset’ the Epic status using Automation. The idea here is that if someone does transition an epic to closed prematurely then automation can set it back to open if stories under it are still open.
