I'm trying to figure out if there is a way to auto change the start date and end date of an issue if this has a dependency with a previous one that is moved or the end date is extended. This is something very basic in project management tools like MS Project. I understand that Jira isn't a Gantt software, but this is something that has become critical for us as we are using Jira as our main tool for any kind of projects, so waterfall model has become a must to have.
Is there any way to do this natively or with some plugin? Maybe there is a workaroud to like using an specific automation process?
You could achieve this with Automation.
Something like the below should do it. Up to you as to any other conditions, which issue types and link types are required based on your systems set-up
Yes, and...to Curt's answer:
Do you have multiple issues in the dependency "chains" of links? If so, and the links are both in-one-direction AND there are no loops, you could get this rule to trigger itself to walk the tree by enabling the "Allow Rule Trigger" option. If both of those criteria are not true, I would advise against it as the looping rule execution to use up your automation SLA quite quickly and halt all rule processing.
Also of note: I recall in another post the roadmap team was experimenting with an automatic shift to start/due dates based on changing one item in a chain. Perhaps keep watch out in case that feature is implemented in the future.
The allow rule trigger setting is in the rule details, at the top of the rule.
