    Description

      NOTE: This suggestion is for JIRA Cloud. Using JIRA Server? See the corresponding suggestion.

      From a jira-user post:

      The guys here have grumbled quite a bit about the inability of Jira (out
      of the box) to notify people when other tasks they are blocking become
      resolved. I was thinking last night about this (hey shouldn't it be just
      the Jira developers who dream about it?!) and was reminded of a simple
      solution I've thought of before:

      Add a notification event for "Linked Issue Resolved", and a new
      notification target grouping "Assignees of all linked issues"

      This event would be triggered when any issue that is inwardly linked
      (linked TO by other issues) is resolved, and notifications, if setup
      usign the new notification grouping, would be sent to all Assignees of
      the inwardly linking issues. Hey presto you find out when issues you
      depend on are fixed.

      This is loosely related to some of the ideas in:

      Workaround

      As with all Automation rules, please keep in mind your Automation Service Limits.
      There's now a very easy way to notify people watching linked issues using Automation for JIRA! Available for both Server and Cloud.

      You can create a rule that comments on linked issues when an issue is resolved. JIRA will then notify the watchers, though you could also set Automation to email, hipchat, slack or text the watchers as well.

      The rule would look something like:

      This was done as part of work to make related issues easier to work with. For more details see https://blog.codebarrel.io/synchronize-parent-and-sub-task-issues-with-automation-for-jira-bdcca6c9d453
