Add ability to associate feature flag with contextual issue/epic/MR
Problem to solve
Our feature flag list interface is nice, but it may be unclear what a feature flag was just by reading the name. Typically this will be an operations person coming in and looking for a feature flag and wanting to understand what they are looking at.
From the issue side, we can make it clear what the status of the associated feature flag is for that feature.
The combination of these two would make it easy to understand what feature flags are for and what the status of an issue is as it relates to feature flags.
- Sidney, Systems Administrator, https://design.gitlab.com/research/personas#persona-sidney
- Product Manager (or others who are setting or need to know the state of feature flags)
It would be useful to be able to select an issue that introduced the feature flag, and this could be linked to from various places where we show the feature flag, adding important context.
What does success look like, and how can we measure that?
