I create a task (called Task1) and a sub-task (called Task2). Somehow the Issue Links of Task1 shows
and the Issue Links of Task 2 shows
is blocked by Task1
Should the Task2 (which is a sub-task of Task1) be a blocker of Task1? Therefore, should the Link Issues indicated Task 1 is blocked by Task2 vice versa?
Yes, that is correct. JIRA links are directional, they are trying to tell you which way round it is.
From what you're seeing, whoever added the link between the two issues set it up in the wrong direction. I'd generally say a sub-task would block a parent.
But, personally, I would never link a sub-task to its parent - the implication is automatic that a sub-task should stop a parent from being closed, because it's part of the parent.
