Can I color code a card based on whether it's blocked by linked issues?

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).

Hi Cheryl,

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.
