Visualizing Project dependencies

Hi,
Is there a way to visualize dependencies between various issues in YouTrack? This would be very useful for project planning & be useful for tracking project progress and identifying bottlenecks.

Thanks,
Gesly

Hello Gesly,

Sorry for a short delay.
Have you already looked at Tree view (Issues> Tree view trigger)?

Thank you.

Hi Andrey,
I'm aware of the Tree View (not sure about the trigger though). The tree view tells me sub-tasks of a given ticket but how does it tell me what its dependencies are?

Thanks,
Gesly

Hi Gesly,

Thanks for clarification.
YouTrack has no such an option at the moment, though it's a good feature to have.
Currently, you may filter out related issues like (without visualisation, but it works):
links: <issueID> 
outputs all issues linked to the issue.

Thank you.

Andrey,
Thanks for the reply. What features are included in the road map for Youtrack? I think many users are looking to have more project management features such as these.

Thanks,
Gesly

Gesly,

YouTrack 7 roadmap has not prepared yet. Likely it'll be posted in our blog http://blog.jetbrains.com/youtrack/ .

Thank you.

Andrey,
Do you think I could extract out the necessary information using the REST API to visualize this on my own?
I haven't looked at the REST API in detail yet.

Thanks,
Gesly

Hello Daniel, sorry for the delayed response. We currently have a Gantt chart feature in YouTrack which allows you visualize dependencies between issues as well as plan your activities. Learn more here: https://www.jetbrains.com/help/youtrack/incloud/Gantt-Chart.html

Let me know if you have any further questions, I'll be happy to help.

The Gantt chart does visualize dependencies, but it unfortunately requires an Estimation field to be specified.

I implemented a web app that uses Graphviz to visualize both parent-child and dependency relationships of the issues in a YouTrack saved search. Check out the project page on GitHub: https://github.com/fschopp/graphviz-for-you-track There may be more features that could be implemented, but the basics should be complete. Also, it should work with any YouTrack configuration, as long as the YouTrack version is recent...

Hope it can be helpful to some. Here's a screenshot of the current version (obviously a demo – but you can guess for what we/I have been using it...):
