I wanted to start using Advanced Roadmaps for a project I inherited.
Using temporary full admin permissions I no longer have, I created Initiative and Theme issue types for the project scheme. Like this;
Theres a lot of extras in this scheme that I dont want to use, my objectives for this project are to have a hierarchy like;
Story / Task
I can give Initiatives a parent Theme;
However, I cannot give Epics an Initiatives parents, or any parent really...;
What am I doing wrong here?
Basically you will have to add "Parent link" field to your EPIC issue type screen. Then you will set up INITIATIVE as parent to EPIC. Last step will be to configure roadmap hierarchy under: Plans->Administration->Hierarchy configuration
When completed you will be able to set up parent issue to EPIC's on roadmap plan.
Thank you Tomasz and Ric both. Through checking your advice, I think I'd found my problem. A strange issue type that exists in between Epic and Initiative, that I cant skip, even though that strange issue type is not available in my project...
So I'd already performed that step of adding a Parent Link field, but it still wouldnt let me connect an epic to an initiative;
So when I click the down chevron, I see a list of issues of a type that was created in a trial performed by another team I have no contact with;
and I cant skip that issue type in the hierarchy even though it is not part of my project.... argh....
So the existence of this "Requirement(Jama)" issue type somewhere in my large organization, which is not even in use by my project, is preventing me from using advanced roadmaps in a way I want to.
Does anyone know of any way to get around this without breaking what the other team are doing with this issue type??
I'm 99% sure this will solve my issue, but I need to wait to get admin access again to try it out :)
