Hi, you can use Jql Search Extensions


In cloud:

linkType = "is blocked by" or linkType = "blocks"


issue in linkType("is blocked by") or issue in linkType("blocks")

Hi, you need to use Script Runner plugin JQL function. 

issueFunction in hasLinks("blocks") OR issueFunction in hasLinks("is blocked by")
