I need a way to not get features to determine the phase length of the phase they belong to. This is making feature management difficult in the release view.
It is also useful in when Features are mapped as EPICs in JIRA and you do not want due dates on them.
|Release time frame|
As noted, when features are added to a release phase, this will impact the length of the release phase itself. The reason for doing so is that the phase includes the feature (and requires the feature to be completed, before the phase itself can be completed).
A workaround would be exclude features from releases phases in this view, or to adjust the due dates on features (to match the desired phase length).
Based on the rationale above, along with current priorities, we do not have plans to make updates in this area. We hope you can understand.
