I am using Jira Portfolio and would like to understand how to resolve the Circular Dependency error. I have looked through the documentation and have not found an example of how to remove or fix the Circular Dependency error. Any guidance or assistance with the matter would greatly be appreciated. Below is a link that I have used in my research at this time.
A Circular Dependency happens when an issue effectively blocks itself on a Logic conflict. The most basic scenario occurs when an issue is blocked by and blocks the same issue.
But a more complex scenario is:
To locate these issues you will need to look at the issue details in the scope panel to identify the Dependencies flagged with a cyclic dependency violation and manually look for the logic conflict point and remove the dependency causing the loop back for the desired order.
Removing the ABC-3 blocks ABC-1 dependency would schedule in the order 1,2,3
Removing the ABC-2 Blocks ABC-3 dependency would schedule the issues 3,1,2
Removing the ABC-1 Blocks ABC-2 dependency would schedule the issues 2,3,1
