I want to create a roadmap/timeline for my project, but future activity issues have no dates, so I am not sure if I can create the dependency if the successor task has no defined start or end date - Is this possible? If so, how?
Are you using an Advanced Roadmaps Plan? If so, this appears to work for me.
Click on the + at the end of the time bar for the predecessor task.
That brings up the dependency pop-up.
In the Choose an issue... field choose or type in the issue key for the successor task. My environment allows me to enter/select a successor task that has no dates.
Then click the checkmark button.
You won't see a dependency line because the successor task has no dates, but you'll see the dependency symbol in the predecessor task.
If you subsequently enter a start date for the successor task, then the line will appear.
Thanks for your response. What if the predecessor does not have dates either? In my case, the successors (multiple) concatenate so the very first issue does have a date but the following (which also need linking to each other) don't.
In other words, how do I then link the second task above to a third task, also with no dates?
Yes, you can still add the dependency, but not from the Plan.
You need to go to the predecessor issue and add a Linked Issue, setting the relationship to the one you see in the Plan when you create a dependency.
In the backend the dependency is represented as a Linked Issue relationship. You can create the links directly in the issue details screens.
Glad to help.
