This runtime policy will automatically block a parent card, when any of its children cards is blocked.
The "Child card is blocked" policy is very useful for tracking bigger projects and is suitable for the Portfolio Kanban management scenario.
How to set up the policy?
Go to your Administration panel by clicking on Administration at the top right of your screen.
Open the Runtime Policies tab -> and select the Child card is blocked policy tab.
Note: In case that there is a set of defined policies to your account -> use the Add new policy button at the upper right side of the panel.
The "Child Card is Blocked" configuration panel has the following fields and properties:
In the Name and Description fields, you can change the name of the policy and describe the scenario you will achieve with it. This way you can create an overview of your active runtime policies, as upon creation every automation is present in the Runtime Policies panel.
You can share the policy with other users (e.g. with a Project Manager of a board), if appropriate. In this case, they will be able to edit/disable/enable the policy.
The Runtime policies are a sort of "point-and-click" programming language with which you can automate any process.
Each Runtime policy has three main properties: When; And; Then.
There is no specific configuration needed for this policy.
How to Enable the policy?
To enable the policy -> click on the green check mark at the top right corner of the configuration panel.
Click on the red x-sign to cancel the creation of the policy.
Practical tip: You can use this runtime policy in combination with the "All children are unblocked" policy.
Note: Only users with administrator privileges can create runtime policies.
