I enabled the plugin Gantt Ondemand on our instance recently, and played with it. It looks really great and would be very useful to me but I could not figure out how to get the issue dependencies working.
Looking at the documentation it should work "straightforward" and dynamically using JIRA native links. To do so, I've created a new Issue Linking, from the system administration:
I've also added this dependency on two tasks and two subtasks (which belong to the same project), but nothing changed on the graph.
Am I do it wrong? or is there an issue reported somewhere that I should be aware of?
Thanks a lot.
Hi Gabriel, I suspect the reason why it isn't working for you is that you actually created a new link instead of using standard one provided by JIRA. By "standard" I mean those available when "Issue linking" is enabled on the Instance (blocked by, relaetes to, clones etc.). Each one of them has some unique ID that plugin is trying to identify when rendering dependencies. If that is true, then we will probably need to do some modifications and make this used links configurable as now link ID's are simply hardcoded.
I will need to know your Jira instance URL to check if my theory here is valid. You may contact my here or directly via email: support(at)wisoft.eu
Thank you for your fast response, you're most certainly rigtht. For some reasons that I'm not aware of the original link has been deleted.
If my understanding is correct there is no workaround until a patch from your side. So in the meantime I'll ask the Support of Atlassian to make this change right in the DB and restore the default value.
Thanks for your help.
I asked the Atlassian Support if it was possible to "reset" the issue link IDs on our instance but it seems more complicated than it looks like.
Would it be possible to fill in a bug for this? To me it's a critical blocker, I can't use the plugin without the dependency feature.
