Hi Satya,

In addition to Christoph's suggestion, ScriptRunner should be able to do this, too.



The add-on uses scripted JQL functions using subqueries. Basically, you can get what you're looking for using a query similar to this:

issueFunction in linkedIssuesOf("issuetype = Story", "blocks")

The linkedIssuesOf() function takes a subquery and then the link description as parameters (with the link description being optional).

Using this method, you would need three separate filters/queries, but this could work for you, I think.
