Linking projects

Hi there..

 

I'm new on Jira....trying to discover how to implement it with the less regret in the future...

For now, I'm stuck with this...

Is there any way to link a project to another project?

Something like parent->child....

We've projects of different products, with diferent issues, versions, etc.......but they can be related to each other.

The only I look for is to know for a project, if it's related to another...... or for a particular project, get a list of his associated.

 

First thought was create as many components as 'child projects', still have associated issues (to a component)....but lose the release versions for that components/projects......right?

 

Is there a limit for number of projects?, components?

 

 

 

Thanks,

There is no limit on project and components. In JIRA you can't link projects, thus the best approach is to have components for smaller initiatives, and create a board (Scrum/kanban) wherein you fetch issues from multiple components. 

 

What do you mean by "but lose the release versions for that components/projects......right?"

As you can have per component boards and make releases exclusively for issues pertaining to that board.

Project categories can help you group your projects together, but there's no real "link"

I also need to be able to link projects, one master project, with many smaller projects that must have separate Jira numbers (prefix), project names but ultimately have a way of linking back to show full view of the entire project and the progress of all of it's mini projects below.

 

An umbrella project of sorts, with many smaller projects that make up the whole. Lots of moving parts
