  1. 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.

      • Develop Structure plugin for JIRA cloud version

        Considering nowadays users want to use in cloud circumstances, why don't you develop Structure plugin for JIRA cloud? I can't find any other project management tools than Structure. Any plans?

        • 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.

            • 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…

              • Add a resource allocation report

                Structure plugin is a neat way to build the projects Work Breakdown Structure (WBS).
                It would be a nice feature to see an aggregated view of the allocated resources per structure. The MS Project resource optimization functionality is not needed from my point of view in an agile environment. However an overview of the resource capacity utilization would be nice.

                • Create sub-issue should work similar to Link New Issue Operation (LNIO)Valiantys

                  I typically want to create issues of another issuetype, and probably in another project.
                  Just cloning is too trivial, and it requires to much work to change issuetype, and project.

                  Alternative (even better): automatically detect sub-issues for certain link-types

                  • Open structure issues in Issue Navigator

                    Similar to functionality in Greenhopper and other plugins, add a button to structure to allow opening the list of issues visible in the structure in the Issue Navigator.

                    I use the Agile Cards plugin. It's possible to print cards from the Issue Navigator. I would like to be able to print cards for a portion of the hierarchy in a Structure but I have no way to get from the structure to that functionality. One possibility is to allow opening the issues currently visible in the Structure in the Issue Navigator.

                    It seems like this would be useful for other…

                    • Bulk Clone Part of the Structure

                      This is becoming a necessity as we move forward with Structure. In order for all users to easily make copies of sets of issues from a repository-type structure at different points in their structure, we need bulk clone. The current copy/clone process requires admin authority and too many steps to roll out to non-admins and expect the environment to stay clean.

                      • Allow an attachments column with attachments preview, similar to the Images column

                        The structure view should allow the user to display "attachments" as a column, where attachments are listed similarly to the "Images" column. Clicking on an attachment thumbnail would popup a preview of the attachment.

                        At the very least it should allow the user to download the file without opening the ticket itself.

                        • improve "templates" functionality and provide simple interface to work with it

                          1. That's will be useful to have a possibility to create structure by one click.
                          Ex. It could be a quick button (as jira has "+ Create issue" at the right top conner). When I click on it, I can choose template name & click create. That's all.
                          2. Sub-tickets in template structure should be predefined, so I don't want to specify each time what project it should be and what options to copy.
                          3. In existing structure that's will be nice to have a possibility to create tickets\sub-tickets using templates for issue. Ex. I want to have a possibility…

                                • Reinstate search on the issue page

                                  In Structure 3, search and filtering functionality was removed from the issue page. But sometimes we need that to rearrange structure without leaving a specific issue.

                                  More feedback:

                                  But with the loss of the toolbar we can no longer filter or search the structure from the issue view.

                                  We frequently need to unpin, search then re-org the structure, and we like to do it from the issue view. At my work we are considering rolling back to 2.x to get the search/filter feature back on the issue view.

                                    It would be great to be able to customize the appearance of the Structure Folders in order to have a possibility of manual highlighting the "problematic" folders.

                                    • Add a custom field on child issues to show the structures root element

                                      I would like to see the root element in the structure in the custom fields of the children so I can use this when exporting data from jira

                                      • Keep carriage returns during Excel export or be able to save off the Printable Page.

                                        We added 2 custom fields for testing steps. The carriage returns show up in Printable Page nicely. But we can just print that. The Excel export doesn't keep them and so the steps are jumbled in each cell instead of a clean representation.

                                        • Allow users of the Tempo Plugin to see a per-user summation of time usage

                                          We always have multiple coders on our projects, and almost always have multiple coders contributing to each piece of functionality within a project. We use the Tempo Plugin for JIRA to keep all that straight.

                                          Structure's time summations are really helpful and beneficial. But for our multi-coder environment, we have to look at that summation in Structure, then look at every subtask and split out exactly who contributed how much to the Structure main task, because different coders are at different billing rates. This is not workable except on very small projects.

                                          What would be ideal is if we could…
