Automatic update of related issues

Added by victor de leon at 2012-12-07 07:57 am

I am looking for a solution that would allow to create a relationships between the issues that would update the one of the issues automatically.

For example. We have a issue A and issue B. These issues are connected with a proper relationship(but but I am not concerned about duplicated by, because it will only close one of the issues). Now if I change any property of a issue A such as progress bar %Done or Priority or Due date or start date or status, issue B will automatically change. And vice versa

The issue relationships "duplicate"/"duplicated by", "blocks"/"blocked by" and "follows"/"followed by" have different consequences, duplicates will be closed when you close the duplicated issue, blocked issues can't be closed until all blocking issues are closed and the start date of following issues will adjust to the end date of the followed issue.

If you want more things connected, you could use subtasks, the percent done, start and end date are dependent of the parent task are dependent on the subtasks.

If you need more/other integration, you will probably need a plugin for that.
