Synchronizing Jira dependency links

Any Jira dependency can be synchronized and there are five slots available i.e. you can visualize up to five types of links.

The soft links will be visible only in Gantt and the new Board module.

It is also possible disable the synchoronization of the dependency links, in which case, adding a link will not create one in Jira.

The default link configuration

The app creates custom links which are most suitable for working with the Gantt tasks:

Gantt: End to End Linkhas to be finished together with → has to be finished together with
Gantt: End to Start Linkhas to be done before → has to be done after
Gantt: Start to End Linkearliest end isstartof → start isearliestend of
Gantt: Start to Start Linkhas to be started together with → has to be started together with

There are two auto task modes in Gantt which work best with the default custom links added by the app. If you decide to change the default links, switch to the manual task mode to avoid unintended rescheduling of the tasks.

To learn more about working with dependencies go to the Linking tasks page or continue to the next section - Gantt configuration.
