Advanced search for indirect relationships

  • 1.  Advanced search for indirect relationships

    I have a relationship structure like the following:

    Strategic Theme -> Business Requirement -> Use Case -> Feature -> User Story -> Functional Specification

    In a custom view / advanced search, I want to look for the elements satisfying the following conditions:

    • all User Stories
    • having an indirect upstream relationship of any type with:
      • a Strategic Theme having:
        • "urgent" as a priority
        • containing some specific words in the name

    So far it seems that "upstream relationship" only accounts for direct relationships, i.e. an element being in direct relation with the item searched for.

    Q: Is it possible to specify that we want a relationship with any degree of separation instead?

    I am not seeing an obvious way to do this with an Advanced Filter but, I am wondering if you couldn't pair it down by Filtering first for items which contain "some specific words in the name". Sounds like all the items you are looking for perhaps have something in their name in common? And this could be used as an identifier in a filter?

    Looking forward to hearing back,
