Bug? As an Admin I check "Auto-minimize Structure Panel" to ON, when I go to structure and click on an Issue, the panel is closed.
So for example, when a general user clicks on the issue from the structure, assuming he has permission, as he/she views the ticket, the the Structure Panel is closed; even though the issue exist in a structure.
declined as not a bug – feel free to follow up
Thanks for the response!
Edward, thanks for your question. I can't tell if this is indeed a bug, but this may explain the behavior: "auto-minimize" setting only closes the Structure section automatically. It does not open Structure section automatically.
Structure section, as well as all other sections, remember their open/closed state and restore it next time the user opens issue page. When "auto-minimize" is ON, there's additional logic that checks that the issue is not in structure and closes the panel back if it's open.
But if the user had it closed manually before, then the panel would be closed initially anyway, regardless of whether the issue is in structure or not.
If you see behavior that's different from what I have described, could you please send more details to firstname.lastname@example.org? Structure and JIRA version, description of the steps taken and a screenshot would help us diagnose the problem quicker.
