Issues can be linked as "blocks" another.
But I have the problem that this is hard to see on the backlog, and people rank blocked issues above the issue that blocks them - even letting them get into sprints when the blocking issue has not been done.
How can I avoid this?
Dear @Martin Gregory,
sure I know, but Jira out-of-the-box cannot do this. So the only chance you have currently, is to look for a plugin that has this ability.
What you can do is raise a suggestion and hope that it get voted up. Eventually Atlassian pics it up.
