Can you use other types of dependencies other than "blocks" or "is blocked by"

Can you track dependencies in advanced roadmaps other than blocks? We use all of the linked options and i would like to track that in my advanced roadmap.

@Melissa Marks -

Assuming you have of the Jira Admin right against your environment, then you can access Jira Administration >> Manage apps and locate "ADVANCED ROADMAPS FOR JIRA" section in the left pane >> Dependencies option.

In the option UI, you will  need to add your issue link type(s) that you want to be available for you to use in the plan and don't forget to save the changes.

Hope this helps.

thank you! that worked 

Excellent.  One last recommendation for you to consider -

You/your team needs to determine a defined business process to educate your users on what issue link type to use under what situation when working with plans.  Otherwise, you will loose control of your plans' issues dependency due to too many different issue link types.
