Jira Structure - which link to choose within an issue to show the dependency lines on the Gantt

Hi all

We're using Structure to help illustrate the various timelines and dependencies across a large multi-Jira-Project program of work, and have already had some great help from here in getting ourselves set up.

I now have a question about which link to choose within an issue to show the dependency lines between issues within the Gantt view of Structure.

I see that when I drag the dependency handle between two issues within the Gantt it links the two issues using "has to be before"/"has to be done after" link. However, if I choose that link from within the ticket itself I don't see the dependency lines. In fact, if I manually add the link from within the ticket, see that the lines aren't in the Gantt and then create the link by dragging from one issue to the other in the Gantt, then I end up with (at first gance) two of the same type of link.

I've looked at the XML of one of the tickets that has two and can see that they're actually slightly different:

<issuelinktype id="10509">
<name>Gantt Dependency</name>
<outwardlinks description="has to be done before">
<issuekey id="2171535">NPI-3</issuekey>

<issuelinktype id="10501">
<name>Gantt End to Start</name>
<outwardlinks description="has to be done before">
<issuekey id="2171535">NPI-3</issuekey>


It seems that in order for someone to create the link by dragging within the Gantt the user needs "Edit Generators"  permission on the Structure, which I'd prefer not to give to everyone that will be involved in identifying dependencies.

What can I do so that people can add a link between issues within the actual ticket (which they already have permissions for) so that it shows up the dependency line in the Gantt? It seems that the one that I need in our situation is:

<issuelinktype id="10501">
<name>Gantt End to Start</name>
<inwardlinks description="has to be done after">

Thanks in advance!

Hi, @Stuart Lipinski. I added structure and structure-gantt tags to this post to help draw the eyeballs of the Structure and Structure.Gantt experts at Tempo to this post.

However, for a faster answer, you may wish to contact the the Structure support team at Tempo.

If you do, it would be great if you share the result here on your thread.

Hope this helps,


Thanks Dave. I've submitted the query over there, so hopefully I'll be able to update here once it's resolved.
