Description

We have a large platform project with many sub-projects and it's important to declare the version dependencies between the sub-projects.

For sure we have this information in our projects' build descriptions, but having it in the roadmaps makes it clear what a project depends on.

Unfortunately, selecting the right versions from the custom field combo box is not usable enough since the sub-project name is not prepended to the version name.

Example v1.0 to be Inventory - v1.0, just like in the Target version issue filter.

I would like to add that it would be great to have the value appearing on the roadmap page link to the version's page.

Ex. Inventory v1.0 links to http://www.example.com/versions/3213

The issue as reported in the initial description (so excluding the roadmap 'thingy' as described in #note-3) is exactly the thing I've reported in issue #9850, which itself is also related to #9851.

Actually, the project name is already prepended to shared versions displayed on the Roadmap view with or without using the Subprojects selection in the right side-bar. This also applies to both the project- and global Gantt views but specifically not for:
  • the project Calendar view (since shared versions aren't displayed there anyways);
  • the Version view (since versions are always tied to a single project anyway);
  • the project- and global Issue list view columns and finally, I think,
  • the Redmine version links.

I suggest to move this topic to #9850. I'll start by updating it with the found information (based on Redmine 2.1.x / *.m.redmine.org) in #9850-9 [note-9].

The initial request to display the project name prepended to a version in the Version custom field combo box is duplicating #9850 completely as said earlier; hence closing this issue as such.
