So I'm using BigPicture plugin along with a project in JIRA Software to manage tasks/projects for marketing team at my job.
I was able to arrange the task hierarchy in the WBS so that it was able to automatically nest subtasks under stories. But when I created an epic, I noticed that the stories linked to that epic won't nest under it in the BigPicture Gantt. Any way I can fix this or have it automatically nest stories under their epics?
If you were using the next-gen project there was no Epic Link -meaning you couldn't synchronize epics, that was due to Atlassian limitations. That has been changed recently and we are in the process of developing this functionality. (please find details in related feature ticket - https://softwareplant.com/jira/browse/ONE-20382)
Please have a look at the full list of missing features and functionalities in nex-gen - here.
Thanks, this solved for me too.
A further question: after I activated "Synchronize Epics", a colleague visited the program Gantt and couldn't see the new structure grouped by Epic. After playing around with "group task" option in columns settings (activating and deactivating it) he managed to get the new view grouped by Epics. Is this and expected behavior?
I had the same problem:
1. Followed Marek's instructions
2. On Gantt view, tasks/stories are still not organized under Epics
So I did the following:
1. On Synchronization tab, reordered the order in which issues are synchronized:
2. Back on Gantt view, choose Data > Re-Sync
For me, it still didn't work until I clicked Data > Group Tasks > by Key, and then removing the grouping (Data > Group Tasks > deselect "Key"). So maybe it's a bug with the UI.
Same issue here. I've configured my setup exactly as Rachel Richardson described above, and I re-sync'd, but my stories appear in a flat list. They are not indented from their epics as they should be.
I manage other projects that were set up some months back, and I was able to get the proper indenting behavior, but I can no longer. I'm not sure if something changed or I've forgotten the secret sauce. I know it was tricky in the past, even when I did get it to ultimately work.
Hi Marcin, I am trying BigPicture and am really struggling with showing the right structure in Gantt for Epics-Stories-Subtasks hierarchy. We also want to show the "has to start before" and "has to start after" links and they don't show up at all for us.
Is there a way to set up a support call where we can go over specific issues? Thanks!!
Tried all above mentioned options, epics keep showing up in a flat list. I am working in cloud with a next-gen project. Everything bone stock and added BigPicture to this, does not work at all. Would be nice to get an update on when default day one functionality will work in your product.
I am glad to inform you that the feature enabling to link tasks to Epic in the NextGen projects is going to be deployed along with BigPicture 8 release, which is already in progress. Our plan is to upgrade all instances to the latest version within the next two weeks.
We appreciate your patience and sincerely hope that the new version will rise up to your expectations.
