  1. Visualize hierarchichal structure in Issue Navigator and GreenHopper planning board

    Structure looks promising. To make it truly usable for my needs, I would need to visualize the hierarchical structure in the Issue Navigator, GreenHopper planning board, and Filter Results dashboard gadget.

    • Allow you to wrap text in a column in the structure view.

      I would like to be able to see 6 columns and have the option to see ALL the text wrapped not just the starting text. I'd like to retain the option to just see the starting text too though. I have used the full screen real estate but I can still only see the start of the wording.

      Current work around is to only have 1 or 2 columns showing at once and add in the others as necessary later.

      e.g. View currently shows:

      Summary Description Labels Components Assignee

      Client Doc Data in clie Docum Disclosure Sarah Sm

      I'd like…

        • Show sum of time columns

          I would like the bottom line of the structure widget to also show the sum of remaining estimates for all (shown) issues in the structure.

          For example, I have a structure with issues for our next release. I would like to enter a filter like "fixVersion=<currentSprint>" to see issues assigned to the current sprint, how they are spread across overall plan, and also see the remaining estimates for the sprint.

          The bottom already say something like "Showing 25 issues (100 issues are not shown)", so there's quite enough space to say "Showing 25 issues (10 weeks remaining) | 100 issues…

          • Add last comment as a column

            Comment can be used to know the current status along with status of jira. Therefore, it will be great if last comment can be displayed.

            • Link a structure to a JIRA board, not just a project

              The description of of Structure on the Project page (https://wiki.almworks.com/display/structure/Structure+on+the+Project+Page) is really misleading because this image is of viewing a JIRA board, not a project. With JIRA boards I can use JQL to divide a projects (or multiple projects) issues across many boards, but I do not have a way to link that board to a specific structure that also filters for the same set of issues.

              Having a default structure for a project is fine, but I would also like to be able to correlate a structure to a board. This would help teams that for example…

              • Allow user to make a new copy of multiple items from one structure in another structure with new keys.

                We have several structures in place now, each with several epics (epic = enhancement for us). We need both an enhancement template and a test plan template, each having several tasks in their hierarchy, in a separate structure. For each new enhancement, we would copy the template into our structure, then edit it to be workable. So we either need the ability to copy a structure template into another structure, clone multiple issues from one structure to another, or make templates out of portions of a structure's hierarchy that we can then clone to another structure.

                • Enable you to specify a parent issue when doing "+ Add to Structure"

                  Currently in the Issue Page you can only add the issue at the _end_ of the structure.

                  Parent issue input could be equal to the way we Link issues in JIRA.

                  • Need additional mark for Closed issues

                    Structure shows check mark when issue is resolved, but I want another mark if issue is closed!

                    • Strikethrough on closed or resolved issue

                      A closed or resolved issue should have have a "strikethrough" on the summary.

                      • Use different fonts for the levels in the hierarchy to make them more distinct

                        It would be great for easier differentiation to make the font larger for higher level issues in the hierarchy. E.g.

                        Level 0 - H1 Bold
                        Level 1 - H2 ...
                        Level 3 - H3
                        etc

                        • expose a structure's "order" so JQL queries and filters can be created to list issues in that order.

                          The order's created would be very handy to be able to query in JQL - something like: project = MARSCOLONY AND assignee = "cosmonaut" ORDER BY "taskorder1-structure" ASC

                          This would allow exposing structures in Confluence and other places in a useful way.

                          Not sure what to do about different levels, but initially just ignore issues that aren't at the top level?

                          • Support a User Story Map View

                            User Story Mapping is becoming a very popular way to organize your product backlog: http://www.slideshare.net/nashjain/user-story-mapping

                            It basically uses a 3 level structure but displays tickets in a vertical layout, as illustrated here:

                            There are only a few tools that support this online, and only one that is part of JIRA. The market is ripe for a tool that is robust, simple, and flexible. Since Structure already organizes tickets hiearchically, all that would be required would be to create a new view of a Structure, with a possible limit of 3-4 levels. (The Story Map structure only supports 3, but I…

                            • Structure Filter improvement: project without structure enable need a hint from the plugin

                              When use a JQL with project field and the project have no flag to support structure show a hint warning the user that needs to enable the support to structure, or will be excellent to choose to enable it.
                              The current implementation only shows no search results.
                              The uses get confused and don't know if the plugin is working or they are doing some misconfiguration.

                                  Structure would be a great supplement to the information provided by Portfolio. It would be great if this data could be used by Structure ... perhaps even have a Portfolio Structure Template?

                                  • Use JIRA Structure as navigation tree on linked Confluence content

                                    JIRA & Confluence are often used hand-in-hand... e.g. new ideas are formulated on CFL, leading to linked tasks in JIRA & followed by documentation etc.. on Confluence again..

                                    The need to reorder issues in JIRA, & use structure to navigate them, can be projected to linked confluence contents as well.

                                    The way i see it, structure widget could replace the space navigation panel.

                                    JIRA issues & corresponding Confluence pages could be linked via labeling (value == structure item ID)

                                    This is the idea in a nutshell, I'd be happy to discuss in more detail if helpful.

                                    • Have some kind of integration with zephyr to manage test cases

                                      I would like to see which test are passed and failed. It would also be nice to see the defects or bugs in the structure and create my test cycles with a structure.
