  1. 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.

    • Filter work log author using groups

      We can currently use the "Work Logged" column and specify an individual user to see his or her work log.

      It would be very useful if we could have the option to specify a group instead of a user, and see all time logged by any member of that group.

      For clarity, we'd like this in addition to the current functionality rather than replacing what's there.

      • Separate Effort from Duration. Gantt should show the duration independent from the effort estimation.

        Duration depends of the availability of resources. Gantt should show how long the issue will take to close, For Stories the duration is given by the sprint. For Epics there is no possibility to hold this information and show it in the Gantt, using the Effort field for this information is completely the wrong way.

        • add hash marks to the parent bar in Gantt based on child dates

          Allow the ability to add hash marks to the parent time bar in Gantt based on child dates. This would allow to see milestones without cluttering the view with multiple child issues.

          • 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.

            • 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 !

                • Hide the days and unworkable hours of the gantt grid. Especially when it is extended to the maximum (hours)

                  When the maximum detailing of the gantt chart is done, the days and hours that do not end up representing a greater amount of columns in the gantt. It would be much more practical with great visualization without these columns. Especially when there is a need to visualize tasks that are defined with small loads of hours and to be executed on the same day.

                  • Horizontal scrollbar in structures and views

                    If the view has many columns it is very hard to see what the values in the columns are. Horizontal scroll-bar is needed.

                    • Have the ability to extend with certain add-on provided entities such as Adaptavist Test Management for Jira (kanoah).

                      I know it's not likely that you can interface with every other add-on that structure customers might also use, but selfishly, I would love to be able to view all test cases associated with an issue under that issue (similar to Extend with linked issue).

                      • As a gantt user, I would like to get my fix versions as milestones

                        As a gantt user, I would like to get my the release date of my versions automatically projected as milestones on the timeline, so that when I bind a task to it, it automatically update the fix version/s field.

                        • Allow to use the same link type in both ways

                          Currently you can't select twice the same link for 2 Gantt dependency types. As a Structure admin, I would like to select the "blocks" link for Finish to Start and the "is blocked by" link for the Start to Finish.
                          Thanks very much

                          • 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!

                            • Artifical task as from BigGant

                              Hi, I thing something as Artifical Tasks from BigGang should be handy. We can´t planning far for future. In many times we need plan work which we did´t have fragmented to tasks. There is only highlevel overview that Member1 will have work on Project1 on week35 - week37 than on Project2 on week38-39 and etc. We need tasks which is not under project and created as Jira task, but only as shadow task significant than Person will be on Project. Folders can only group tasks but doesn´t have start date and end date.

                              • Support dependency offsets

                                As a project planner I need to be able to define a dependency with an offset.
                                Example: Task 5 can start 3 days after Task 4 starts. I would define that as a Start-to-start dependency from Task 5 on Task 4 with a +3 day offset.

                                • "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.

                                    I'd like to be able to print the Gantt view alongside the Structure View. The time can be shortened into 1 column and show start and finish dates alongside the list, the same way it is on the page but in the printed view.

                                    • Provide the option to "Extend with Linked Issues" with all Link Types

                                      Would it be possible to provide an option to "Extend with Linked Issues" with all Link Types instead of having to create an extender for every Link Type? Hopefully that makes sense...

                                      • allow showing worklogs for a specific sprint and team

                                        I assume a lot of people want to use structure for reporting as well. Most teams work with sprints and therefore it is essential to be able to select "sprints" as a filter for worklogs in structure views. A structure/or view could show worklogs for a certain sprint only and besides also for the involved team as well

                                        • Send to top/send to bottom

                                          I miss the "Send to Top" and "Send to Bottom" functionality that is in the context menu on Agile boards. I learned how to cut/paste to move tickets but that is a lot of clicks and scrolling for a common (for me) action.
                                          I saw a comment from Igor in another suggestion to open a new panel with the same structure, and drag the ticket to the top/bottom of the new panel. I tried to do this and I got this error "Cannot move issues inside JQL query result."
                                          I'm still feeling my way around structure so maybe I'm doing…
