one can use issueLinkType() to find issues that block other issues, but I'm not clear how to filter OUT cases when the blocking issue was been Closed (and thus isn't really blocking anymore).
Sadly, issueLinkType() function only allows you to specify the link description but not the status of the destination issues, so you can not remove from your filter those issue that are currently blocked by Done issues.
You must go for a third-party app, ie. using JQL Booster Pack (FREE) you can type the following:
- Retrieve all issues blocked by unresolved issues
"resolution IS EMPTY"
Hope this helps,
Following query is for cloud version
Find all issues which are blocked by another issue
"is blocked by"
