How to see task is unblocked?

Hello,
I have the next requirements:
1. I want to see that a task is blocked when I open it. I don't want to scroll to the links section for it.
2. I want to make a filter for blocked issues.
3. If the task is unblocked — all linked blockers are closed, I want to see it when I open task(I still don't want to scroll to the links section for it). And I want to make a filter for them.

Do you have any ideas on how to resolve it? I think about creating new status `Blocked`, but how to automatically change it depends on linked issues statuses?

Hi @Rodion Golovushkin ,

Do you want to filter the query results by Link Type?

Examples:

  • issueLinkType = "is blocked by"
  • issueLinkType != "is blocked by"

Hi @Rodion Golovushkin 

As an extra to what Ollie has given, the "flag" functionality is a very visual way of knowing that a task is blocked. From the board, right click on a task and select Flag. This is a toggle which changes the background colour of the card i.e. visual.

The downside of using a Flag for your requirements is that it has no knowledge of links between tasks, it is purely a visual marker.
