transfer dependencies in Jira to depencies in smartsheet

Options

We do have the smartsheet - Jira connector. We can bring projects from Jira into Smartsheet.

What is missing is to translate the issue links (dependencies, like: blocker, start-finish, etc) to the predecessor

column in smartsheet. so that dependencies from Jira are taken over in the smartsheet planning.

How can that be done?

    Hi @jeroen

    Dependencies in Smartsheet and Jira work differently which means they are not easily transferrable in the way that you're looking to do.

    Issue Keys for a Jira Issue's dependencies will be synced to Smartsheet one-way as text, and the nature of the dependency (e.g. "blocked by") is not included. Therefore, it won't be able to display the predecessors that connect different tasks. Please submit your feedback to our Product team through this form, here!

    Thanks,

    Hello @jeroen,

    even though your question already more than one year old - did you find a good solution for synchronizing/transfering dependencies?

    Thanks in advance!
