You can flag an issue to indicate that it's important or blocked. The card of a flagged issue is displayed in yellow in the Scrum backlog, Active sprints of a Scrum board, Kanban backlog (if enabled), and Kanban board.
To flag an issue:
Go to your board or backlog.
Select an issue and select > Add flag.
You can also add a comment when you're adding a flag to or removing a flag from an issue. You may want to do this to indicate your reason for adding or removing the flag.
Flagged issues are visible to all members of a project.
Search for flagged issues
The flag for an issue is stored in a custom checkbox field called "Flagged", which has only one value: Impediment. Use the JQL query Flagged = Impediment to find flagged issues.
