Thank you for visiting our feedback website! Feel free to vote or post your own ideas. Make sure you turn on the option to notify you about changes and comments in your account settings, so that you can stay updated about the progress of the ideas you’re interested in.

I suggest Structure Plugin should ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can vote and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can vote on it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Show live Gantt chart

    The Structure Board could display Gantt chart instead of the aggregate progress.

    However, this may need for additional data to be recorded for each issue (work logs may be not enough).

    Also it would require a wide screen for effective use.

    • Allow an issue to be located in multiple places within the structure

      This would accommodate issues that do not have a simple one-to-one relationship in the hierarchy.

      • Create parent issue that does not create jira issue

        Creating a parent issue (at any hierachical level) simply to act as a container for sub-issues/sub-tasks should not necessarily create a new jira issue in many circumstances.

        • Option for issues to be sorted by column (mainly for search result)

          1. Secondary Panel: It would be great if user could sort issues by column by clicking on it or selecting the option from column's dropdown.

          2. Main Panel: In respect to hierarchy, would be also great if user could sort issues that are on same level of indentation, under selected parent.
          Example steps for such action could be: 1. Select / highlight parent where sub-issues can be sorted; 2. Select Sort option;
          For top level issues in hierarchy, sort could be available by clicking on column or selecting the option from column's dropdown, no issues should be selected in this…

          • Visualize hierarchichal structure in Issue Navigator and GreenHopper planning board

            Structure looks promising. To make it truly usable for my needs, I would need to visualize the hierarchical structure in the Issue Navigator, GreenHopper planning board, and Filter Results dashboard gadget.

            • Adapt aggregation of Time Tracking fields with filter

              Sum up the Time Tracking fields of shown issues only.
              When I apply a filter, I want to see th aggregation results of the resultset only (filtered issues).
              So we can look at all aggregations (and sub-aggregations) for a specific Sprint or Release....

              • Allow a structure to be added to another structure.

                I'd like to create individual structures for major initiatives or projects within the company. Then, I'd like to create a global structure that includes the individual "sub-structures" within it for an overall summary view.

                • Limit parent-child relationship to specific types of issues

                  Let JIRA admin specify what issue types could contain what other issue types. For example, a Test Suite may contain Test Cases, which can contain other Test Cases, but not Feature Requests.

                    • Propagate field values down the hierarchy

                      Let the user specify, for example, that all sub-issues of the issue X should have the same Security Level and Project and Priority.

                            So that it could be possible to configure Structure Plugin to open extended form instead of the one with just a summary as it is by default.

                            • Allow you to wrap text in a column in the structure view.

                              I would like to be able to see 6 columns and have the option to see ALL the text wrapped not just the starting text. I'd like to retain the option to just see the starting text too though. I have used the full screen real estate but I can still only see the start of the wording.

                              Current work around is to only have 1 or 2 columns showing at once and add in the others as necessary later.

                              e.g. View currently shows:

                              Summary Description Labels Components Assignee

                              Client Doc Data in clie Docum Disclosure Sarah Sm

                              • Allow a structure to be deactivated

                                Once a project is complete, I'd like to be able to mark the associated structure as inactive so that it no longer shows in the drop-down menu on the Structure tab. I could do this by deleting the structure, but I'd like to be able to save it in an "archive" state so that I can view it for historical/reference purposes. I could also do this by backing it up and then deleting it, but it would be nice if it could be done with just an attribute on the structure.

                                    • have a preview pane for viewing issue details.

                                      When I am looking through the structure I'd like to have an optional small preview pane at the bottom of my screen that will show me additional information about the issue. I would use this preview pane for inspecting the details of issues in my search results before adding them to my structure. Without this feature I find myself opening multiple browser windows and displaying them side-by-side.

                                      • Show sum of time columns

                                        I would like the bottom line of the structure widget to also show the sum of remaining estimates for all (shown) issues in the structure.

                                        For example, I have a structure with issues for our next release. I would like to enter a filter like "fixVersion=<currentSprint>" to see issues assigned to the current sprint, how they are spread across overall plan, and also see the remaining estimates for the sprint.

                                        The bottom already say something like "Showing 25 issues (100 issues are not shown)", so there's quite enough space to say "Showing 25 issues (10 weeks remaining) | 100 issues…

                                        • Improve the administration (Synchronization Settings) for structures with many syncronizers

                                          We have structures with many syncronizations and have had some problems maintaining them:

                                          1. Fast way of resyncronize ALL syncronization rules for the structure
                                          - In some cases the syncronizations needs to be "Resync"ed.
                                          We have found that for example when a filter syncronizer refer via a 'filter' it doesn't take effect when we change the refered filter. After a forced Resync it works.
                                          Example
                                          JQL query: (project = DEVENVC2JIRA or label = Jira) and filter = "DEVENVC2 - Next month" and status = Assigned
                                          In this case, when we change the "next month", we need to resync. To do…
