change position of structure plugin in issue page
Currently structure is shown as the last plugin on issue page. IIt would be nice to customize it's position so that it can be set as the first shown plugin showing a hierarchic view of related issues.
Cannot solve on the plugin level — please see comments.
Hi Markus, thanks for the feedback.
I understand this is indeed a valid request and a valuable feature. However, there's not much we can do about it at the plugin level – this should be a JIRA's feature.
The reason for that is that a plugin doesn't "know" about other plugins. The order of the panels on the issue page is determined by a number, which each plugin vendor specifies for their panel. If we knew exactly which other plugins you have installed, we could change the number so that our panel appears where you want it. However, other users might want a different position, and there's no way for us to make that a customizable setting.
So unfortunately I have to close this request. However, it's a good feature request for JIRA, so if you file a feature request with Atlassian, I'll personally vote for it. The request should be generic, I believe, something like "Allow JIRA admin to rearrange the order of panels on the issue page".
