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
Andrea, thanks for your feedback!

It would be great to have a column called Structure that returned the name of the structures in the issue navigator similar to sub-tasks column. We would then add to JIRA Issue macro in Confluence for reporting purposes.
Kevin, thanks for the clarification.
It could be done with a synchronizer indeed, or even with just a StructureListener, but the problem is that there could be more than one structure, so you might need more than one custom fields.
So at the moment I don't see a clear path to exactly this feature in structure. On the other hand, we're going to release an "extensible columns" feature soon, which would allow to define a column in structure, which would display this value.

I would like to see it as a custom jira field, so on the issue details page as well
I think this could probably be done by writing a custom synchronizer, but maybe it's a good idea to have this included in structure itself. The field would be read only, or if editable as a consequence the structure itself gets updated.
Thanks - would you like to see that only inside structure (as a column), or also somewhere else (on the issue navigator search results table, on the issue page, etc)
