I have a project with several teams involved and cross-divisional stories consisting of several sub-tasks.
Now I would like to visualize the dependencies in one central location, in the dashboard, in a report - basically wherever. I don't mind.
I would just like to be able to provide the users with the possibility to get an overview of dependencies so that they know which task needs to be done first, second, third, etc.
Any ideas are highly appreciated!
Thanks in advance.
Here's a dependency mapper add-on for Jira Cloud that was released on 14 March 2020: https://marketplace.atlassian.com/apps/1221796/dependency-mapper-for-jira?hosting=cloud&tab=overview. I am going to request a free trial from our Jira Admin so will report back.
I just realised I didn't report back on our Dependency Mapper add-on trial on Jira Cloud as mentioned above. The add-on itself appeared to be effective and easy to use, but we didn't get very far I'm afraid, as we had multiple vendors using multiple Jira projects and it was very difficult to get dependent tickets linked to each other!
The lesson learned is to make identification of dependencies and linking of tickets a priority for all delivery leads from the start and track weekly. The client has since decided to move to a different product, so maybe next time ...
If you'd like to, we can set up a small demo where we present how Dependency Map is visualizing dependencies. It is also great for configuring views where you can select all different kinds of Jira fields to be visualized.
It is available for Jira Server and Data Center. It will take some time before we are ready to make it available in a cloud environment though, probably not in the next 12 months as it looks now.
for Jira Server, marketplace has other options like spiderview - https://marketplace.atlassian.com/apps/1223552/spiderview?hosting=server&tab=overview.
