Hi @Manoj Dadhich and welcome to the Community!

One way to do this, using just Jira out-of-the-box, is to flag those issues that are on the critical path. Then you can either or both:

a) find them with a JQL search like:  Flagged = Impediment 

b) on a Kanban or Scrum board, create a quick filter (Flagged = Impediment) and thereby see them all by using the quick filter.

Hi Kristján, I have same request coming up and your answer is very helpful. Just want to check by "is to flag those issues that are on the critical path", are you saying we need to manually flag the issues on the critical path? Or is there a way to setup in Jira to flag them automatically?
