Un-block other projects

In our company, we have three projects, let's assume they are named OCT, TML and AFP. I work in the TML project, and would like to do two things:

  • find a list of all stories where TML is blocking the OCT or AFP project
  • find a list of all stories where TML is blocked by OCT or AFP project

Using JQL, I can easily use the following queries:

project = "TML" AND issueLinkType = blocks

project = "TML" AND issueLinkType = "is blocked by"

but then the majority of stories in the list is of type TML blocks TML, or TML blocked by TML. 

How can I filter out the issues/stories where we are blocking or are blocked by a DIFFERENT project only??

Hi @Matthis Thorade ,

This kind of filtering is not possible in jira as of now. Instead these are some plugin which will help you achieve this 

Hope this helps.

Thanks. This is a pity, I cannot buy any apps/extensions. This seems quite basic functionality to me.

I'm not certain if this would be what you're looking for but I would try it like below

issueLinkType in (blocks, "is blocked by") AND NOT (project = TML AND issueLinkType in (blocks, "is blocked by"))

@Prince Nyeche I guess this will list all the linked issues in other projects, not the issues in the specific project which has only linked issues with other projects.

Hmm, I thought as much.
