You can create a dependency in the following ways:
- Click on the dot next to the taskbar and drag&drop it on the target task, or drop to the dependency dot of the target task. When you hover over a dependency dot or a taskbar of the target task, both dot and half of a taskbar pulsate.
- Click the dot which appears next to the taskbar when you hover over the task with the mouse.
- Create dependencies directly on a Jira issue page.

As you are creating a dependency by manually dragging and positioning the arrow, as you hover the mouse over the target task you see a message letting you know that you can change the ASAP on/off by holding the ALT key.
