  1. Add "Basic" search feature as an alternative to JQL

    For users who are not well versed in JQL, it would be nice to have the ability to add Jira filters in a way that is comparable to Jira's "Basic" search feature, rather than by inputting the JQL manually.

    Perhaps, on the dialog that is displayed when the user adds a JQL insert automation for the first time, we could have a "Basic" link that converts the query to the basic view, just like Jira's issue navigator. Then, all the JQL would be converted into a series of UI inputs (user pickers, drop-downs, etc).

    In addition to this, it would…

  2. Show hierarchy on filtered issues

    When you filter with JQL in structure, the hierarchy below is not shown if sub issues don't match the filter.

  3. As a user I would like to be able to view issues in a side pane instead of having to load a new page

    As a user, I would like to be able to view issues in a side pane instead of having to load a new page, so I save time in looking at the details of each issue

    Thank you for the suggestion!

    We cannot reuse Jira’s issue view, so we will have to implement our own, and implementing it will be a challenge. Most of the Jira fields can already be viewed inside Structure and changed by inline editing.

    Could you please describe what you would like to view or edit in the side panel?

  4. Limit the issuetypes for automators so you can use multiple link automators per structure

    With Synchronizers it is possible to limit the issuetypes. Therefore it is possible to have multiple link synchronizers for different issuetypes.

    Example:
    one could defined a parent/child link between epics and features and use a is blocked link between features and bugs. with automators this scenario can not be implemented at the moment.

  5. Expose broken dependencies via JIRA native 'Integrity Checker'

    ever seen this in the jira log?

    2013-07-30 11:44:07,812 Structure-Jobs-aea1f3 Queue-Thread#1 WARN wama 642x189704x1 156cgam 10.7.30.226 /rest/plugins/self-update/1.0/ [ext.sync.filter.FilterSynchronizer] Filter autosync #52 for structure 'Quoting structure' (#138) failed to run: filter 14610 does not exist or is not available to wama

    In my opinion, such notifications could be added to the 'Integrity Checker', section 'Check for invalid filter subscriptions'

    Fix is straightforward -> remove the dependency

    alternative: provide the same on the Structure administration page

  6. Custom structure template based on 1 or more JIRA fields

    The plugin allows users to create arbitrary structure and also structure based on JIRA links. It would be nice if there is a way to create structure based on JIRA fields like Reporter, Assignee, version, status. So user can drill down the issues by reporter, By Assignee, By version or any such combination and order.

  8. Documentation Update - How to create a new View

    The Structure 4.5 documentation is lacking when describing how to create new views.

    For example, if I take "Basic View" and copy it to my Structure, I would expect that I could edit it, but the View Details screen says

    Access: Use - you can use this view but you cannot update it.

    There is no "Save As" button as indicated by the documentation.

  10. Be able to Receive a notification when an item is manually added to a structure folder and/or it's sub-folders

    Be able to Receive a notification when an item is manually added to a structure folder and/or it's sub-folders. That way when someone adds an item or removes one to an existing structure folder, anyone subscribed to notifications for that folder would get an email notification. to implement, just add a button to the button bar when the folder is selected and when you click the button, you get a popup with an option to subscribe to notifications like you do with issues in JIRA.

    Obviously, this would only be available for folders WITHOUT automation.

  11. Allow re-formatting aggregated time fields (e.g. into hours).

    We are budgeting a project - so we need to show a rollup of hours and then an extension of these hours into costs.

    So we need to be able to:
    a) format time so that it doesn't simplify 60 hours spread over in a year into 1w 2d 4h - it needs to show as "60 hours"
    b) provide a column that does math on the 60 hours. e.g. 60 hours at $125/hr = $7500

    Together we will rid organisational planning of excel :)

  12. Export Resource usage to excel, to generate shareable reports

    I'd like to be able to share resource usage information with people not using jira.
    Export to excel of the resource usage table could be useful.
    Graphical and printable representations of table also could be useful.

  13. 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.

  14. Reorganize the ManageStructure page


    • allow us to specify a short name for each synchronizer

    • move the items which appear once per structure, i.e., Name, Owner, Access, Popularity, Operations, out of the table to a header, so that the information in the Sync With column could be expanded: this would allow more room so that the Sychronizer Short Name could be displayed, and the type of synchronizer would not line-wrap.
      Thanks !

  15. Implement a 'Progress Bar' for the structures while they're uploading

    Currently, there are no indicators of how long will it take to show up a structure and the 'spinning wheel' is showing up to several minutes (while uploading/reindexing a large number of tickets.
    The progress bar will help to determine that the 'work in progress' and there are no issues/hangs during this process.

  16. Folder metadata

    It would be useful to have folder metadata. There are many uses for this but at a high level you could definitely folder types (strategic vs. operational), provide folder owners etc.

  18. It would be great to be able to clear out the clipboard..

    RIght now there does not appear to be a away to remove issues from the clipboard (other than pasting). Seems like a user may try to do a cut / copy and decide they no longer want the issues. Seems like this could be a fairly simple fix (maybe a x button above the clipboard?).

  19. Ability to connect to more that one Confluence instance (Structure.Pages)

    Current (unless I'm doing something wrong) we can only link one Confluence instance when setting up Structure Pages integration.

    It would be nice to have the ability to link more than one. This should come though with the proper UI to select the server when adding a page or searching.

  20. Allow ignoring specific projects from rolling up status to parent issue in status soll up synchronizer

    We use the status roll up synchronizer to signalize on an story the status of the implementation task which are childs of the issue using the structure plugin.

    But besides implemenation issues there also may be issues beneath that story which are not related to the implementation (e.g. project management tasks like verifying the implementation).

    So it would be perfect to select the projects from which statuses are rolled up to the story.

    Just like the selection on the parent itself, a selection of the childs (project/ issuetype) could be useful to take only the relevant child issues for the…
