Agile sprint health gadget

What does the "Blockers" indicator telling me on this gadet? I understand the "Flagged" indicator (ORANGE issues on the work view flagged as an impediment, in my case). But, what make an issue a blocker? I don't see it on the documentation pg for this feature.

It's simply a count of those issues in the sprint that have priority "Blocker".

Ahh very good. Thank you, Mark. In my case, I renamed the priorities when I built up my instance last year. In this case, those with a critical priority are those being called out as 'blocked'. That makes sense;-).

  • 0-Critical
  • 1-Major
  • 2-Minor
  • 3-Trivial
  • New Feature

That's it. To be more exact, the number "Blockers" in the gadget is the count of issues that have the maximum possible priority :)

What is the name of this priority depends on what you have configured on your system. In ours - like in Paul's - it's called "Critical".

You can have a look here to know more about the gadget. I found this page quite useful!
