Jira gadget and linked issues

Hi,

I have many links between issue in our projects. For example: on the marketing prokect we have a "release" issue which links to "Requirement" and "Bug".

Is there any gadget to display all the "Releases" and for each "Release" issue display all its related "Requirements" and "Bugs"?

Thanks,

Janiv.

Hi Janiv,

maybe you don't need a gadget but a report for that. We have written a report that lists all the issues from a specific project version with all its links to other issues in the same or other projects. The report shows only the issues that have a link to another issue. It was not too complicated.

Best regards

Thomas

I think there is no existing plugin for this you have to develop your own gadget

You can use JQL Tricks Plugin and use its JQL functions to create filters and add it to dashboard.

But let me warn you, if your JIRA instance is huge, it won't be a good idea to add it to dashboard because of the performance aspects. Do some tests before you do it! You can, maybe, limit the number of people who can add those!

Link Heirarchy Plugin may be of some use (but not supported in Jira 5)

Thanks, How do you write a report?

there's a tutorial here: https://developer.atlassian.com/display/JIRADEV/Plugin+Tutorial+-+Creating+a+JIRA+Report

You have to install the Atlassian SDK and write your own Java Class that extends an AbstractReport. With the SDK you can query Jira Issues and their properties and filter them in any way you like, for example get all issues that are linked to another issue.

Then you have to create a velocity template for the report where you display the content from your queries in a nice way :-)

At last you put all the things together, deploy the jar file and then hopefully you will see your report in the project overview under "reports"
