Notify When Dependency Resolved

This workflow sends notification to the assignee of an issue when a dependant issue is resolved.






Notify assignee when an issue linked as "required for" is resolved (on-change rule)

Use Case

This workflow lets a user know when one of the issues that they are waiting on is resolved.


This rule checks the status of any issues that are linked as required for. If a linked issue is resolved, the assignee of the blocked issue is notified.
