WBS-Gantt Chart does not preserve parent-child issue relation in JIRA

Hi all,

I am working with JIRA Work Management and the WBS Gantt-Chart App. 

I created a template in WBS Gantt-Chart App with Tasks and subtasks and their dependencies.

When I use the template and populate the Epics with those Tasks and Subtasks, they show well-indented in WBS Gantt Chart. However, when I go back to the JIRA List board, I find that the relationship between the Epic and all the Tasks and Subtasks is not parent-child, hence the Tasks and Subtasks do not show nested within that Epic. 

When I click on the Epic I do see that those tasks and subtasks created with the template in WBS Gantt Chart are only "linked issues" and not "child issues". 


How do I make sure that the parent-child relation is preserved between WBS Gantt-Chart and JIRA?


Thank you all for any reply,

Hi @Guido Ridolfi

I believe that this may not be supported on the WBS Gantt-App and JWM.  I recommend you contact them directly to confirm.

We had a similar issues with Advanced Roadmaps, where the parent-child relationships in the roadmap did not translate correctly in the WBS Gantt app.
