I found the following Query:
issue in linkedIssues(ABC-123,"is blocked by")
How ever I am looking for a query that will show me all issues blocked by ANY issue.
Essentially, I'm trying to see if I can setup JIRA to run my test cases.
I want color code the test cases in progress by whether they are blocked by issues in red (under the inprogress column).
I believe you can perform this with an add-on such as ScriptRunner. I would take a look at the Communities posts Can I write a query which will find blockers? and Show list of linked issues from a number of issues for a query that may be of use.
Yep, and it's insane one has to pay extra on monthly basis for such a basic functionality! I understand, by creating a market place where other developers make money and Atlassian cut their % is a comfortable place to be in but there is a limit to everything and if you don't want to think strategically then I have no other choice than looking for another tool for my next start-up. Paying maybe not that big money but for every small feature, totalling to significant sum for minimal usable setup, circa $25-40 per user per month - obviously your clients are those not really having problems with money, and obviously it's not me. My next choice will some something else, YouTrack or else, there is a competition around.
I agree that it's quite frustrating. I have used many issue tracking systems over time and within those products been able to perform a large variety of customizations to suit the needs of my company or project within that company. With this cloud product, it seems that every time I try and implement something I'd have considered to base-level capability 10 years ago, the solution I am offered is yet another $5-$10/month addon from the marketplace, by a developer that I don't know much about.
@Søren Bachmann I am using the issuelinktype = "is blocked by" to add color to cards however I only want to color the cards being blocked (or blocking) issues if the blocker is not 'done'.
In other words, if the issue blocking the issue is done, I don't want the card to be colored.
Any suggestions on how to do that?
I am looking for the status of the linked issue, not the issue that has the linked issue.
i.e. AB-123 has a linked issue 'is blocked by' YZ-123
AB-123 status = 'To Do'
YZ-123 status = 'Done'
The query you show looks at status of AB-123
I want to look at the status of YZ-123
Goal: Color card AB-123 since YZ-123 is the linkedissue UNLESS YZ-123 is done
(Since it does not block AB-123 anymore since it is complete).
No solution in Jira. There is an add-on I am using that made an update a couple weeks ago that breaks out 'Blocks' & 'Is Blocked by' but it does involve a monthly charge per Jira user.
If the blocking ticket is done, it is displayed with the text crossed out so there is visibility to the status of the blocking ticket. Hope that helps.
Add-on is called Pivot Report by Colined (I am not affiliated with them, just a customer)
Hi cbaker, Deanna noted that "I am looking for the status of the linked issue, not the issue that has the linked issue."
I'm still looking for a solution as well, but it looks like Jira doesn't have a solution built in for this. It seems that here's no JQL that can detect the status of linked issues at the moment.
