Is there a posibility to prevent transitions of JIRA issues depending on the status of linked issues?
In JIRA there is the posibility to indicate issue links and indicate them as being blocked, FS-dependent, and so on, but as far as I have been able to find, it is up to the user to take that into account.
It would be beneficial if JIRA would assist the users in this aspect, both when starting work on an issue (e.g. not allowing the start when there are blocking issues that are not marked as resolved) as well as when using JIRA Agile (automatically include blocking issues in a sprint when adding a blocked issue, or preventing to add a blocked issue when not all blocking issues are included)
In https://bitbucket.org/amarkelov/andreymarkelov-atlas-plugins-utils/wiki/Home there is Links Validator. This validator checks that there are no linked issues in setted statuses. Add-On https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/ru.andreymarkelov.atlas.plugins.utils
Conditioned Workflow Functions for JIRA provides a Conditioned validator that can run a JQL query to determine whether or not to allow the transition to proceed. You could use a query similar to the following. Note that JQL currently doesn't allow you to search by specific link type (see JRA-25640):
issuekey in linkedIssues(%original_key%) and status is not resolved
