On the Kanban board, how do I show only issues that have an open linked issue "is blocked by"?

Len Schroath I'm New Here Friday

I am trying to add a color red on my kanban board for any blocked issues.  However, there is not a "blocked" status defined, and likely will be challenging since there are many other teams that would need to be convinced.  But, the tickets that have a blocking issue have the issue linked as "is blocked by", so I think I can use that.

However, I only want to include blocking issues that are still open.  In other words, if a blocking issue gets resolved, then the issue that is blocked by it should not show red anymore.

So far I have the following query:  

issueFunction in hasLinks("is blocked by")

What I need is to then filter the results of the blocking issues for status.  Any ideas on how to do this?

Hi @Len Schroath ,

welcome to the Atlassian Community!


Please try this query:

issueFunction in linkedIssuesOf("resolution = Unresolved", "blocks")

This should find all issues that are blocked by unresolved issues.
