Is there a way to see which JIRA Projects are using the Link Issues and the "Blocks" option?

We have in access of 80 JIRA Projects on the go and would like to understand which JIRA Projects are using the Link Issues function with the "Blocks" option to hihglight when an Issue is Blocked. Is there a easy way to check this?

As a company we would like Teams to use the "Flag and Comment" option to reflect Blockers.

So before we remove the "Blocks" option from the "Link Issues" function, we would like to establish which JIRA Projects are using them so that we can have the conversation with the respective Teams.

With JQL Tricks you can do a 'issue in hasLinks("blocks")' JQL query.

Or if you're self-hosting it would be pretty easy to query the database to find this out.

Thank you Jeff. Much appreciated.

Hello Jeff

I tried the JQL query format you suggested but wasn't successful. I then tried this JQL and it worked. Why does one have to include the "issuefunction" in the query?

issueFunction in hasLinks("blocks")
