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 plugins that operate on lists of issue in the Issue Navigator.
My need is also to print issues via Agile Cards. Typically I want to print a selected subset of issues within a structure.
Thanks Chris -- good suggestions.
I too would like this feature. Often, my users want to sort the issues visible in the structure according to assignee, priority, etc. They don't understand that ordering is significant in the structure view.
It would be very nice if there were some way to open a particular set of issues visible in the structure view within the issue navigator. Then, users could sort to their heart's content.
In particular, it would be nice if one could click on a particular issue in the structure and execute the following query in the issue navigator: issuekey in structure("Blah", "ancestor in [issuekey = ###]").
"###" could be one or more issue IDs which were selected in the structure view.
Ruth, thanks for your comment! We'll also work on the "Preview" panel on the Structure Board, so you won't need to go to the issue panel OR to the issue navigator!

We use structure to organize projects. I also would like to be able to add selected items to the issue navigator, so that I can more easily read them through one by one to see what still needs to be done, what are the latest comments, etc.. I can go to an issue from the structure, but to see the next item I have to go back, select the next, etc. That is a bit troublesome.
Thanks Peter - we'll work on this. Right now there's another issue to bulk edit selected issues in the structure: http://jira.almworks.com/browse/HJ-368
But it would bring the user directly to bulk edit page. We'll think how we can open Issue Navigator with the selection from Structure.

In reviewing the documentation, I'm effectively asking for the automated creation of a filter such "as issue in structure(<structure name>, <issue key>)".
