This plug-in is under development. It is not recommended to use it in production context.
It as no impact on the database, but the API may change in next releases.

Purpose :

Shows the traceability matrix of 2 lists of issues. If some relations exists between issues (either related_to, blocked_by, followed...) they will appear in the matrix.
The macro uses custom queries to get the two lists of issues.
The traceability matrix is available in wiki pages, accessible with 2 macros :
  • traceability_matrix_short : is a cross table
  • traceability_matrix_detailed : is a 2 column table, that put related issues side by side.

This plugin has been inspired by the Traceability plugin written by Emergya Consultoria.

This plugin is much needed. It would easily be a 5 stars if working. With redmine 3.3, nothing is displayed on the traceability tab and no documentation explains how to retrieve the information on the wiki page.
The configuration can be performed though
