Linking based on the tree structure

Linking based on the tree structure is implemented to support tracking relations between the objects. If one issue is placed under another by drag and drop on the folders list, the connection between them is automatically created. The default relation between the issues is the ‘Parent/Child’ type. Connections are set up only between the closest issues, which means that a link for a Folder → Issue line won’t be created.

Steps
In order to activate the feature:

  1. Choose the project with running RTM for Jira app, where you wish to activate linking based on the tree structure.
  2. Navigate to Project Settings > RTM Configuration.
  3. Open Tree structure tab.
  4. Switch the Create links based on the tree structure toggle to on.
  5. Optionally, you can change the type of links that will be created between two objects. By default, it’s RTM Tree Relation.

Note
Linking based on the tree structure is automatically activated during the app configuration and onboarding. Manual activation is only required in the case when RTM was installed before the release of the feature (29 Feb, 2021).

Issue Keys

Switch the Issue Keys toggle to on, to show issue keys on the tree.
