Structure for JIRA: Ideas

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.

  1. Use the standard Atlassian User Interface objects

    I would suggest you to resort exclusively to the AUI objects for your interface instead of your custom ones that clearly gives the impression that you are exiting the Jira world to step into another one.
    I think you user would deserve a smoother user experience, with the same kind of buttons, icons, tables to which they are already used to. I'm especially talking about the transformation/filters features that should be improved in that direction to my mind. Thanks for you great achievement!

  2. Regular Expression Text Function for substring extraction

    A regular express text function would be very useful to extract content from a Text field into a column.

    For example, if a Description field has:

    Name: Value
    Name1: Value2

    I can write a regex formula to extract out the value for Name: into a Column.

  3. provide "root element of column x" in the variable selection list of formula column editor

    E.g. to calculate a percentual distribution over all rows of a structure, for the formula you need the 100% value which is typically shown on the root element.

    Therefore it would make a lot of sense, to be able inside "formula column A" to use a columns B's value, but the root element value! This should be possible even if column B is a formula itself.
    As we can already use variables like "Column B ..." in formulas it would be nice to add "Root Value of Column B ..." to the variable selection list

  4. add custom fields to structure-folders

    Budgets are often not added as issues. Structure could add value by allowing some limited amount of named custom fields on structure-folders (like notes, but some more). They would bind to a structure and could be accessed from formula columns.

  5. Set different views for folders

    Different folders in Structure may have different needs for columns/views, so it would be great to be able to define a view to use for each folder.

  6. "Sum over Sub-items" For Dates / Aggregate Dates - with the ability to choose Max or Min Date

    I'd like to see my dates roll up the hierarchy so that I can see higher level estimates as they roll up. For example, if I have a folder for a project and I have a number of tasks underneath, I'd like to see the latest due date in the project, or the earliest start date.

  7. "Remove Inserter/Extender Duplicates" generator should also work for non-hierarchical duplicates

    When using the "Remove Inserter/Extender Duplicates" generator also non-hierarchical duplicates, based on different used linkage types like "child-of" and "resolved by" should be removed.

  8. Reverse hierarchy

    For instance when looking on what a team (or singel dev) is working on. I would like to expand an issue and see what motivates it.

    It is possible to do with normal link types but not with epic link and sub-ask-link

    So what i want to do is to create a view from the perspective of a developer. follow parents and depends on deeper. Having the story as the first layer.

    Story: Build a nice landing page
    - Epic: make the onboarding and retention of new customers better (reverse epic link)
    - Initiative: gett 1000 new customers (link)
    -…

  9. Add Project Category

    Structure recently added the ability to use "Status Category" as a column. As Categories can be pretty powerful tools, I would like to suggest bringing "Project Category" in as a column as well.

    In addition to columns, the bigger need I have at the moment is to be able to "Group by" Project Category in the Automation options. I also noticed that Status Category is missing here as well, so I think it would be great to bring the existing work to the Automation section as well.

  10. Choose what group label to display and which order for field fixVersion

    This idea is a to provide a way to display only (or to hide) some fixVersion instead off all of them when we use the grouping feature. If it is possible to choose the storing order (asc, dsc) it would be awesome !

  11. Allow importing XRay tests creating a tree of folders corresponding to a test path in the XRay test repository

    XRay instroduced a Test Repository in v3. Now every XRay test has a field 'Repository Path' looking like: '/Test Repository/Release 1/Phase 1/AAA/'.

    However, the Structure view is still better than XRay repository. It would be great to be able to import XRay tests recreating the same folder structure as in the XRay test repository automatically. So that users can use both XRay test repository AND Structure.

  13. Include "Epic Link" in Categories that are copied when adding issues

    The ability to add issues directly in structure is great. Especially when using the "Copy from" categories option to have a new ticket inherit a lot of values from another ticket. It would be REALLY useful to have "epic link" among the list of included fields that are copied. I've used the "required fields" workaround for other fields, but unfortunately "epic link" cannot be made required.

  14. Option to change font style of Summary text for different levels of hierarchy

    Formula column with Wikimarkup is great, but since you cannot use this on the Summary column (which must be included in the Structure as is) there isn't a way to clearly distinguish the different levels of your hierarchy. Would be great if you could opt to bold the Summary column for Level 0, for example.

  15. Show keyboard shortcuts more prominently

    The keyboard shortcuts looks great, however discoverability could be better. Even technically minded individuals in the majority do not go searching for keyboard shortcuts.

    Adoption of Structure may be more natural and frictionless if users were shown a permanent reference to keyboard shortcuts.

  17. Ability to save and "Perspectives" or combined set of Structure, View, Enabled Quickfilters that you can save and share

    Users get overwhelmed with the number of options that they have to change the way they visualize the data in the structure.

    Currently we can share a perspective which is similar functionality to what is being requested. However we cannot keep a library of perspectives in the system the same way we have the Views. This would help provide users with a library of options based on what they intend to do (i.e. risk management, project prioritization, reporting, etc.)

  18. Activate Automation Mode as the Default

    Hi,
    Transformations such as Filters and Sorts interfere with Automation Generators.
    When the user has clicked the Automation button to go into 'edit mode' - although they can still go into this mode when they do not have the edit generators permission - then Transformations are disabled, which is great!
    However, if the Structure has Automation Generators but a certain user has NOT gone into this mode, they can accidently (or do so without knowing the 'damage') apply Transformations, and mess up the Structure for other users.
    Proposed solution A:
    Rather than not being in 'edit mode' being the default,…

  19. Use a field (i.e. sequential index) to automatically create hierarchy into Structure when importing from CSV/Jira.

    Hi, we usually load Jira items via CSV import, and it is very time consuming to arrange them with links or to manually indent them into the Structure.
    It would be great to use a field like the Structure's sequential index.
    For instance, using that field during import, to automatically arrange the hierarchy into the Structure (i.e., item 3.1.3 to be put automatically after 3.1.2 and underneath 3.1).

    Many thanks, and congrats for your works, it is very well done!

  20. Integrate with zephyr for Jira

    Integrate with zephyr for Jira to be able to get the test execution and the linked defect related information into structures. Currently structures is able to show the Zephyr test case , but not the test execution status and the linked defects
