  1. 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…

        • notes

          To fully take advantage of the new Notes field it would be really nice to make it independent of the issues to which it is added. As it works now, if a structure contains a multiple of the same issue and a note is added this note is attached to all of these issues.

          Separating this is actually the only thing left to be able to use the structure plugin as a product structure documenting an entire product portfolio. One issue for each part and the notes field (renamed "Qty" or similar) to hold the amount of parts of the…

          • Allow an attachments column with attachments preview, similar to the Images column

            The structure view should allow the user to display "attachments" as a column, where attachments are listed similarly to the "Images" column. Clicking on an attachment thumbnail would popup a preview of the attachment.

            At the very least it should allow the user to download the file without opening the ticket itself.

            • 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.

                • improve "templates" functionality and provide simple interface to work with it

                  1. That's will be useful to have a possibility to create structure by one click.
                  Ex. It could be a quick button (as jira has "+ Create issue" at the right top conner). When I click on it, I can choose template name & click create. That's all.
                  2. Sub-tickets in template structure should be predefined, so I don't want to specify each time what project it should be and what options to copy.
                  3. In existing structure that's will be nice to have a possibility to create tickets\sub-tickets using templates for issue. Ex. I want to have a possibility…

                  • Support hierarchy of projects

                    Can I display a hierarchy of projects? I have a project x that is a sub project of a, b, c. Is this possible?

                      • When I change the query (the Find field), I would like the URL to be updated accordingly.

                        So that I can restore the state of the view from browser history (using back button etc.).

                        • Can Structure use Portfolio Data

                          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?

                          • Reinstate search on the issue page

                            In Structure 3, search and filtering functionality was removed from the issue page. But sometimes we need that to rearrange structure without leaving a specific issue.

                            More feedback:

                            But with the loss of the toolbar we can no longer filter or search the structure from the issue view.

                            We frequently need to unpin, search then re-org the structure, and we like to do it from the issue view. At my work we are considering rolling back to 2.x to get the search/filter feature back on the issue view.

                            • 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.
