This information applies to Portfolio for Jira 3.0 and later. If you're using an earlier version (2.0 to 2.27) see the Portfolio for Jira live plans documentation.
Before managing the dependencies in your plan, ensure that Portfolio for Jira is already configured to use issue links in your Jira instance.
Note that when adding issue links, the relationships between issues will need to be defined. Make sure that these defined relationships are suitable for how your team works. See Configuring issue dependencies to know how.
Managing dependencies in a plan
When planning work for your teams, it helps to monitor the dependencies across the issues in the plan. This helps you spot any issues that are blocking the progress of other issues, and ultimately helps you create a realistic schedule for your teams.
The details of the associated dependencies, which include:
- Dependency type, which is the relationship that is defined by the issue links configured in either Portfolio for Jira or Jira
- The issue details, status, and assignee of dependency
- Lead time, which is the number of days between the end of a blocking issue, and the start date of the issue that's being blocked
- Filter for the dependencies for the specific issue that you're viewing. When you click the filter link, the corresponding dependent issues will be displayed in the roadmap view.
