Advanced Roadmaps and links between items


I've been using Jira Advanced Roadmaps in the new interface for a month or two. Am now starting to experiment more with scheduling and dependencies.

From my experiments, it seems that JAR only acknowledges and displays the "blocks/is blocked by" links between two items. There are many alternative link types, for example, "has to be done before" or "has to be finished together with", which are in some ways more descriptive than "blocks". However, as far as I can tell, only "block" links are shown on JAR as linking two issues.

Is it possible to show link types other than "blocks" on JAR?

Which link types affect how the auto-scheduler works?

Hi @Patrick Wright

The 'Blocks/is blocked by' issue link is the default one being considered by Advanced Roadmaps, but it is possible to add/remove issue link types to be loaded and considered as dependencies by Advanced Roadmaps.

Documentation on this:




Thanks, Thomas, that helps!

So just to be clear:

  • Advanced Roadmaps only offers one type (blocks) by default
  • You can create custom dependency types
  • You can select from multiple dependency types in an order if your choosing

Is that right?

Looking to do something similar here. Does anyone know I can add additional dependency types when using Jira cloud?
