Is there a way to show dependencies from outside of the plan in the Dependencies Report view?

I have created a plan that contains a project work issue with a dependency on a work issue in a different project.  That other project is not included in the plan I have created.  The dependency was created via the "issue links" capability within the issue.


While I can click on the dependency badge in "Roadmap" view and see the dependency in the "not in this plan" section of the popup, when I switch to the "Dependencies report" view this dependency is not included in the visualization.  Is it possible to do this, or does the "Dependencies" report only show work issues that are part of the plan?

@Doug Snyder -

Unfortunately, AR for Jira currently doesn't support "Linked Issue"concept.  Therefore, it will not work for what you tried to accomplished.  It is currently only support issues association via the issue hierarchy relationship setup.

I would recommend you to contact Atlassian Support for further assistance.  I believe there are feature requests on their roadmap already.

Hope this helps.

Hi @Doug Snyder 

If you would be interested in a third party add-on, you can try out our app to view the full Jira Issue Type hierarchy of Linked issues, Portfolio/Advanced Roadmaps, Epics, and Subtasks up to 10 levels.

Agile Tools - Epic Tree, Links Tree and Time in Status 

Key features of Links Hierarchy:

  • Hierarchy upto 10 levels deep
  • Progress % on "remaining estimate" or "original estimates"
  • Edit Issue summary, time estimates, story points and assignee on the tree with real time updates in the progress
  • Rolled up percentage completion at all levels
  • Ability to add/remove the columns on the report

If you create a filter for your plan including the other project it works

@Joseph Chung Yin Thank you so much for the prompt reply!
