I would like to add Project 1 and Project 2 in JIRA. However, in order to maintain a relation (only at project level only and not at issue types linking e.g. EPIC to EPIC , Epic to Task ).
Is it possible? What are the steps involved?
Projects cannot be “linked”. I’m unsure what your goal is here. Regardless projects stand-alone from each other. The only association that can be shared between projects are Things like workflows, schemes etc. and this is only for CMP projects.
Thank You. The aim was with Program Portfolio (consisting multiple projects running). I would like to chain the relevant projects so it makes it easy to backtrack the parent (or else (Project 1) and the 7th inline projects.
If this is not possible then, all projects are individual entities and can only be link to each other via Issue Types only.
I cannot imagine that, JIRA does not provide project id level linking/association.
I am a bit stuck too. I don't understand what "chain projects" is for, nor "backtrack the project". I don't have any guess at why a project link might be useful (I can see categorisation and shared configs have uses, but that's grouping, not linking)
Would it be possible to explain what you are trying to achieve? Forget linking/chaining/backtracking details, could you tell us what you would like your data to be reporting back to you?
@Jatin Malhotra please do share your solution!
I do handle multiple projects and programs. And I keep track of them by linking them using Dependency type and view them using Jira structures. So that I can track of the deliverables from different project align to a initiative at program level. Or Project to project dependencies.
