Depends On Link not available in Plans

Randy Makoski (323) | asked Dec 01 '14, 4:45 p.m.
We just completed an upgrade to version 5.0.1. In many of our plan views we colorize based on the Depends On link type. The option to use a Depends On link is no longer available when using colors. The opposite end of the link (Blocks) is a valid choice. Where did the dependsOn option go?

I could verify in my 5.0.1 that the dependsOn: entry is missing from Plan View --> color and that is also does not work to handcode dependsOn:set into the color display.
Could you please open a defect against RTC 5.0.1 on and link to this forum entry?

As a short term workaround if it is feasible I would add tags to each work item which has a dependsOn link (i.e. query for those work items with the link which do not have the tag yet regularly and use bulk operation to add the tag) and then set a color:tag= ... in your plans.

If this is a helpful answer to your question please mark it as accepted.
