You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

  1. Allow to see the structure in the issue type 'Test'

    When viewing an issue of type “Test”, created by Zephyr and assigned to a Structure, we are not able to see the corresponding Structure section as expected. If we change the type of the issue to anything else (Bug, Story, Epic, etc.) then the Structure section becomes visible. It seems that either Structure or Zephyr is not playing well together. This is critical to our organization as we try to integrate structured testing into our organization.

    • Keep backlog always up-to-date with notifications

      I think it would be nice to have possibility to notify Scrum Master and Product Owner that some of UserStories are holding in a backlog for quite a long period of time (could be specified in extra settings), for example 3 moths.
      It should help to keep backlog always with actual UserStories.

      • Allow "Active Sprint" option for the Work Logged field

        Currently, the options are current and prior day, week, month, year. Can we have current and prior sprint?

        • Be able to propagate up a risk value

          If a sub task had a custom field which indicated it's current risk or similar be able to propagate that up to the top level to show the worst of the risks or some other flag

          e.g. if a single subtask of a item is red risk, be able to show that red risk in all of it's parents in the structure. choose the worst value of all sub nodes to show at the parent level.

          • Allow CSV Output of Information from Structure Board

            It would be nice to have the ability to dump the structure board to a csv. Thinking that it would be something quick and dirty, with ' - ' noting structure, like this:
            "Name", "Est Hours", "Progress"
            "Mars Colony", "10h", "80%"
            " - Terraform", "6h", "50%"
            " - - Make Oxygen", "2h", "100%"
            " - Create Colony", "4h", "0"

            Once this was CSV, it could be manipulated in other programs. Right now, I don't see a way to get the Hierarchy or estimate roll-up data out of the system for project managers to use.

            • Add progress aggregation based on the number of sub-items

              Parent issue progress % seems incorrect based on underlying children progress % values, assuming equal weighting per child.

              • Option to always include Epic Link in the Structure

                Same as the option to automatically include sub-tasks in the Structure, also add the option to always include the Epic Link.

                • Enable Colums to show sum of person days (eg. 101 days) instead of "20w 1d" notation

                  As one usually plans on higher levels in bigger amounts of "man days", it would be very helpful to be able to change the columns to this notation for the days and sums of days.
                  I know one can change that in the jira administration, but this would affect the whole instance and also smaller issue levels.

                  • Create column for Greenhopper Agile version

                    Greenhopper's Agile plugin allows for nested "versions" to define Agile Sprints within a top-level planned release. This is represented in JIRA as comma-separated items in the Fix Version/s column.

                    The Agile Planning Board is smart enough to show the last Version in that comma-separated list indicating the current sprint to which an issue is assigned. Structure is showing all the comma-separated versions which takes up a lot of column width space (particularly considering the Structure view does not wrap text in columns...).

                    Would you consider creating an Agile Version column that is essentially the last item in the Fix Version/s…

                      • Queries based on structure, especially ones that make roll-up easier

                        * All issues that are direct children of this issue
                        * All issues that are children, grandshildren, etc. of this issue
                        * Parent of this issue
                        * Store the structure information in the same tables as other JIRA information, so it can be queried the same way.

                            (e.g. a parent’s progress is just based on the progress of its children, but if one of those children has 10x more children than the other, it would be nice to weight it that way)

                            • allow us to synchronize links between sibling and cousin issues

                              Right now the link synchronizer works only between parent and sub-issues. However, this is often not enough. For example, we would like to automatically link "development" and "system testing", which are usually sibling issues under a single "Change Reqest ### for system XYZ" issue.

                              A use case for "cousin" links is similar: "integration testing" should depend on all "system testing" issues within the same "Change Request ###" parent/grandparent issue.

                              Right now we work around this by using template structures, but this is fiddly and error prone, since issues like "integration testing" should be edited manually after N "change request for…

                                    • support project roles in JIRA

                                      Structure currently only supports permission groups but not project roles. If a project is set to support project roles then there could be surprises if some users are part of the right role but do not belong to the groups that Structure has been permitted to.

                                      • allow a status synchronizer to allow rollups based the first subitem entering the next stage

                                        The status synchronizer allows as of today(2.0.0) only a rollup of the status to the parent when all children have reached this status (i.e. all children are "done" > parent is set to "done").

                                        Imagine a workflow like: open > in progress > done.

                                        For the status "in progress" it would be great to have a "roll-up once the first subitem enters a new state". So the parent reflects the new status once the first sub-item has been moved from "open" into "in progress".

                                        • support grouping of issues by link type

                                          e.g. all 'Blocked By' issues added via Extend automator grouped together under parent.

                                          This makes the Jira relationship between Structure parent/child issues clearer.
