See the image below. This is a gross oversimplification, but assume an epic with 3 stories, each in a different project. In BigPicture the structure is destroyed due to an emphasis on project-based nodes. That might be good for some, but for others that's irrelevant - the actual hierarchy is what matters - the Epic and its stories and their subtasks, regardless of project. Basically, get rid of project nodes.
How can I build that tree in BigPicture? Is it even possible?
Hi @Rob Horan
Just at this moment, I've finished my answer regarding your first question :) You can find it in this thread.
Question no 2 - if you deselect Projects in Box Configuration >> Tasks >> Scope Definition; they shouldn't be displayed on the Gantt chart more. Please try to Clear Cache (Jira Administration >> Manage Apps >> BigPicture Technical Configuration >> Advanced >> Clear Cache). Please let me know did it help.
@Rob HoranI answer your questions with pleasure. BigPicture is an advanced tool. However, once it's adjusted & configured properly, it is very supportive both in planning projects as well as day-to-day leading and reporting.
Moreover, I do hope that our conversations make a significant contribution for other users who are facing similar issues, so keep asking, please :)
Hi @Rob Horan
Yes, it’s possible :) Please note that in Box Configuration >> Tasks >> Scope Definition, apart from defining your Program's scope, you can also select which elements will be displayed as tasks.
You can add the following Jira task types to the scope:
I see that in the case you described below, you added Projects. To resolve the situation, please remove them. Below you can find my simplified example. I recreated your case; I have 3 projects + 1 epic that is a parent of 2 stories.
To remove project nodes, please go to Box Configuration and disable ‘Projects’ in the Task Type drop-down list.
Make sure that you have selected epics as Structure Builder. Once it’s done your WBS will be displayed as you expected.
This is extremely helpful. I have two quick follow ups.
