Visualize Master Features -> Features dependencies

The visualization feature works only for record links within features. I need a way to view the list of master features and all the links to the features they contain. Trying to maintain ordering within releases for master features vs features is very hard, and having a visual way to show the links would be very useful.

    Thank you for the idea. If you have created dependencies (or other links) between a master feature and other features, the Visualize option will be available in the Record links section of the master feature. To see all master features and their related features, we would recommend creating a pivot table. You can find a great report to get you started on the Features -> Board, Master features view. On that page, click Views -> Related views -> Pivot table: Features by release and master feature.

    Thank you for the pivot table info, that is useful.

     

    However - on the original idea - I assign features to master features using the assignment ability launched with the Master Feature feature. However, this does not appear to create any record links. So, I cannot visualize them - when I go to the master feature there is no record link, and no Visualize link.


    Are you saying that in addition to assigning the feature to the master feature I would need to manually go and also add record links from feature to master feature? That seems like a lot of duplicate work.

     

    See attached screenshot - this is a master feature, with a feature included, however there is no Record links.

    I have the same need and the pivot table suggested doesn't meet it. I am looking for the same Visualize view as is available for Record Links, to show the relationships between Master Features and Features.
