Starting app version 2.1.x, a direction can be defined for a configured link, either outward or inward. For instance, link Duplicate has inward direction is duplicated by and outward direction duplicates.
Jira admins define a default Time tracking mode.
In case your team does not track time in Jira, you may want to select the option No Time tracking to make it a default behavior for all new Gantt charts.
In addition, starting the app version 3.0.c, admins can define default extended chart settings such as Initial auto-scheduling, Default unit for resource workload, etc.
Quick tip: To make some custom markers appear in Gantt chart by default, use the next template below and adjust it to your needs.
In addition to the app configuration, Jira admins configure the app permissions such as the app visibility, chart creation, screen field check and impersonated view.
By default, all Jira users are granted permission to see "Gantt" in Jira top menu and access the app. Select specific groups in case you want to restrict the app access.
By default, all Jira users who are granted "App visibility" permission can create a Gantt chart. Select specific groups in case you want to limit the chart creation ability.
Screen field check (in Server/Data Center versions)
This settings was added to the app’s server version, starting v2.2.x.
By default, there is no verification if configured field is present on project's screens. Therefore, a user might be able to set a value for a field that is configured for Gantt chart but is not present on Create/Edit issue screens of configured project. Should you prefer to prevent such behavior, please make sure to check the checkbox 'Screen field check'.
Allow impersonated view
The expected behavior is that Jira user without a permission to access a project will not see its tasks on a chart. This setting lets chart creators to allow users with restricted access to see the project tasks on a chart in a read-only mode. In other words, it allows users with restricted access to see a chart the way chart owner does.
When this company-wide setting is turned on, and a chart creator also turned impersonation on, the app impersonates as chart creator for Jira issues and links loading. All other operations are NOT using impersonation.
The existing Gantt charts aren’t affected by the changes made in company-wide configuration with the exception for Screen field check and Allow impersonated view which are not the default values. Both settings affect all Gantt charts, existing and new ones.
Jira admin can define the default user setting for all new Gantt Suite users. If needed, they can be overridden by the app users, according to their business needs.
