I suggest Structure should ...

Enable use of existing, saved filters to populate a structure vs. having to manually enter filter criteria

Use case: I have an existing filter that is the basis for a board. The board dynamically updates, whenever I change the criteria of the filter upon which the board is based. However, if I want to use that same existing filter with a Structure, I must replicate the criteria in structure, and then perform dual maintenance, whenever I want to change filter criteria. If the saved filter could be used by Structure, I would only have to modify the filter itself. This might be addressed in the process of solving the following existing idea:

    Hello Bud,

    Thank you for your request! Do you use Automation to create your structures? You can use Insert -> JQL Query and define the JQL with filter, for example, filter = "My Filter Name". As a result, you always will use the exact saved jira filter to create your structures.
    Is it helpful?

    Thanks!
    Julia,
