How to create a filter or dashboard item for users to see issues assigned to them that are not currently blocked by anything?

My users want a filter or dashboard widget that can show them issues assigned to them that are not blocked (I.E. they can work on them now).

I can't seem to create this filter and looking at some other posts it appears I can install addons but I can't figure out how to set these up so they can see them.

Any guidance would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Hello.

I use this to check for issues that are not blocked:  issueFunction not in hasLinks("blocks") OR issueFunction not in hasLinks("is blocked by") . These are scripted JQL functions that come with ScriptRunner and you can use them in your filters if you select the "Advanced" option when you search for issues. You can use this to check for any knid of link between issues.

That's exactly where I was heading in my follow up answer.

Fantastic!  Using that plus Rich Filters I was able to set up their dashboards as desired.  Huge help, thank you!

@Cristina Abunei, now the issue I am running into is their filters are not displaying tasks that have all blocked links marked as completed.

So, if any item has a block, it does not display, regardless of the status of the blocking issue.  How have you solved this scenario?

How are you telling JIRA that something is blocking an issue?

 

Via linked issues.  They are linking issues and setting them to a "blocks" or "is blocked by" status.
