I am trying to import linked issues and creating a hierarchy based on the mapping below
Requirements --> Story --> Test
Story “satisfies” Requirements and “is tested by” Test.
Would like a report that shows a list of requirements and # of stories that it “is satisfied by” and in turn see the # of tests associated.
Please advise. Thanks
There are two solutions to represent the relation between issues. The best option depends on the data.
You can build a
custom Issue hierarchy if the child issue has only one parent.
In your case,
each Test is linked only to one Story (Story is a parent to a Test), but Story may have several Tests.
and each Story is linked only to one Requirement (Requirement is a parent to a Story), but Requirement may have several Stories.
There are more details and examples on how to define a new hierarchy in the Issue dimension:
Additional Issue hierarchies.
import issue links as separate dimensions. This is a more robust solution and will also work for many-to-many relations between Test and Story (Test is linked to several Stories and Story is linked to several Tests).
In this case, you might want to import 2 issue link dimensions from the Story perspective.
“Linked Requirement” that would show a relation between Story and Requirement
“Linked Test” that would show a relation between Story and Test

I believe this is a related / following topic:
I am trying to create a custom linked hierarchy based on the issue type linked across projects. I have a REQ project with issue type Requirements and a development project with issue type Story and Test
The links are as follows Requirements --> Story --> Test
Requirement are linked to Story with outward_link - satisfies and inward_link is satisfied by
Story is linked to the Test with outward_link tests and inward_link is tested by
I tried using the following advanced settings to create …

Yes they are related, I lost the initial request and hence had to create a separate question with more information.
I have the following dimensions created as suggested by you
#Test cases linked to story - Story view
name = “Test Cases”
inward_link = “is tested by” #direction from Story
issue_type = “Test”
dimension = true
#Requirement linked to Story - Story view
name = “Linked Requirement”
outward_link = “satisfies” #direction from Story
issue_type = “Requirements”
dimension = true
How do i create the hierarchy with custom links defined above? Please note, Requirements and Test Cases are in a different project.
