Requirement Yogi: How do you insert a dependency in a requirement ?


I've created a requirements page based on the Blueprint – "Product Requirement Document".

I wanted to insert a related requirement in the column "Related Requirements".

I tried to insert it as text only. It didn't work.

It tried to insert it using the requirement macro. It didn't work.

The documentation on "dependencies" doesn't help a lot.

Has somebody else encountered the same problem?

I can't find anywhere in the documentation on how you reference a requirement. 

I was expecting either a macro or something similar to adding a link to a Confluence page using the "[" shortcut. Was hoping as you started typing it would filter down the possible requirements and allow you to choose.

The only way I've found to create a proper requirement reference is to copy the whole requirement ID and paste it to the desired place on a page. Some automatic conversion to a requirement reference macro then happens.

Is this the only way to insert references?  

create a new requirement and start typing the id of the requirement you want to reference to, it will show the existing requirement and create it as a reference instead.

I'm having similr issue, have you ever managed to fix it?
