Blocking Workflow Transition To Done if Linked Issues "Is blocked by" are not Done

Any way to block issues transition on the Validators/Conditions/Post Functions workflows tools in jira to prevent the transition of an issue if it has any linked "Is blocked by" issue.

Linked issues can be any type and any project as we have several of them.

BTW we use Jira Cloud.

I am not looking for any add-on for the moment to solve this. Even Though we have automation for jira we are not looking to program post functions on this.

Hi Sebastian,

This question has been asked a couple times and the end result is that you will need an add-on to accomplish this.  See this article as well as the Suggestions for this titled Ability to prevent closing an issue if all linked "is blocked by" issues are not closed.

Please vote on the Server version ( JRASERVER-43369 ) and the Cloud version ( JRACLOUD-43369 )to add impact so we can get this added natively.



Thanks @Branden McElveen for the quick response!
