We have several stories and tasks documented in JIRA which are linked to each other.
The stories and tasks may be planned in the same sprint or across different sprints.
For eg., if story A has an outcome which is used by story B, how do I represent this linkage in a graphical fashion in JIRA / Greenhopper?
Is there a way to view a hierarchical / connected structure of various stories / tasks and their dependencies?
For enforcing checks:
https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.fca.jira.plugins.workflowToolbox.workflow-toolbox - Use the validators Condition on linked issues
For visualizing the dependencies
https://marketplace.atlassian.com/34717 - Structure Plugin
Exactly what I was looking for!!
Just another related question. Does the Docminer add-in also display the sprint details of tasks? For eg., if a related task / story is only planned 3 sprints down the line, the main task may not get completed. How can that be reflected?
You can do it by using the Links Hierarchy plugin. It fully supports Agile and draws links (including Epics and subtaks) with awesome HTML 5 interactive graphs.
Furthermore, it supports Sprints in a visual way, so you can easily track whether an issue is related to an Sprint and the Sprint status as well as the history of closed Sprints and filter by any of them.
There are a number of excellent JIRA plugins that can help visualize dependencies. The Dependency Risk for JIRA plugin displays a sprint's dependency list directly on the Backlog view of the Scrum board so the team will see the dependencies in the same view being used to plan the sprint.
