Displaying dependencies between stories


I would like to combine interdependencies from three different projects (three KANBAN Boards)

Current structure is

Team 1 - separate JIRA Board
Team 2 - separate JIRA Board
Team 3 - separate JIRA Board

Team 1 has 6 colums
Team 2&3 has 5 Colums

I combined now all columns in one KANBAN Board. I am also able to select all team members & their stories within this Board.

The Point is until Team 2 & 3 haven´t finished their tickets.
Team 1 can´t consider their story as done.

Therefore I would like to display within this Board: During the daily, all tickets at which Team members of 2&3 are currently working on and the related Ticket of Team 1 will be displayed as well.

Consider here that: The Ticket of Team 1 is always assigned to another person than the tickets Team 2 & 3

The goal is: The show the overall connection of this one ticket a team member of 2&3 is currently working on. I want to display the tickets of the selected person of Team 2&3 and show at the same moment the connected Ticket of Team 1.

All Tickets I am talking about are Story tickets - so there can´t be any dependency displayed via Subtasks Epics, etc.

dependencies are marked via "is blocked by"

Hopefully, someone has some proposal for that

Hi @markus_goetz

As @Fabian Lim mentioned BigPicture may be one of the possible solutions.
The plugin allows the creation of a Program consisting of 3 Jira Projects/Boards and subsequently displaying cross-team dependencies on a single view. With a JQL Filter, you can narrow down the view to display only a selected group of tasks.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Hi @markus_goetz

You may want to consider bigpicture, structure or upgrading to premium to used advanced roadmaps to easily see interdependencies across projects.


Advanced roadmaps:


You can also use workflow validations to restrict transitions, but once again you will need plugins like jmwe or jsu.
