Hello Hadas,

Yes, it is possible, let me give you what I have done for my use case, maybe it will help you out for yours:

- First here is a brief description of the logic. I want all my tickets, which are returned based on JQL query to be flagged, if they have links that are of type "Blocked-by" (basically if my ticket is blocked by other ticket I will flag it). I am using Jira Datacenter version 9.4. Cheers.

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue
import com.atlassian.jira.user.ApplicationUser
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.customfields.option.Option
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.jql.parser.JqlQueryParser
import com.atlassian.jira.web.bean.PagerFilter
import com.atlassian.jira.event.type.EventDispatchOption
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import groovy.transform.Field

@Field String customFieldName = 'Documentation update required' // Correct name of the flagging field, checkbox
@Field String customFieldValue = '.' // value for flagging checkbox

def List<Option> getOptions(Issue issue, CustomField customField, List<String> optionList) {
def config = customField.getRelevantConfig(issue)
def options = ComponentAccessor.getOptionsManager().getOptions(config)
def optionsToSelect = options.findAll { it.value in optionList }
return optionsToSelect

// flag desired issues
def void updateIssues(MutableIssue issue, ApplicationUser user, String linkedIssueStatus, String type) {
if(type.equals("Blocker") && !linkedIssueStatus.equals("Closed") && !linkedIssueStatus.equals("Resolved")){"Updating..." + issue.getKey())
def customField = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager().getCustomFieldObjects(issue).findByName(customFieldName)
assert customField : "Could not find custom field with name $customFieldName"

issue.setCustomFieldValue(customField, getOptions(issue, customField, ["."]))
ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager().updateIssue(user, issue, EventDispatchOption.ISSUE_UPDATED, false)

def jqlQueryParser = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(JqlQueryParser)
def searchService = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(SearchService)
def issueManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager()
def user = ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext().getLoggedInUser()
def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()

// edit this query to suit your needs
def query = jqlQueryParser.parseQuery("myquery...")

def search =, query, PagerFilter.getUnlimitedFilter())

search.results.each { documentIssue ->
// if you need a mutable issue we can do:
def issue = issueManager.getIssueObject( // root issue

//List<IssueLink> allOutIssueLink = ComponentAccessor.getIssueLinkManager().getOutwardLinks(issue.getId());
List<IssueLink> allInIssueLink = ComponentAccessor.getIssueLinkManager().getInwardLinks(issue.getId());

// Linked issues here are blocked by ... X issue
for (Iterator<IssueLink> outIterator = allInIssueLink.iterator(); outIterator.hasNext();) {
IssueLink issueLink = (IssueLink);
String linkedIssueStatus = issueLink.getSourceObject().getStatus().getName(); // dont get destination, because its the root issue
String type = issueLink.getIssueLinkType().getName();
// flag it and update it
updateIssues(issue, user, linkedIssueStatus, type);
