  1. Report or filter on accumulated fields

    FIelds like 'progress', 'estimate' or 'logged' are calculated (accumulated) over the sub-structure under the issue. I would like to be able to report those values in reports (e.g. accumulated estimate) or use them in JQL queries (e.g. accumulated_estimate > 2w)

    • Connnect more than one JIRA instance

      When working with external partners they often use their own JIRA instance. You can connect them via the JIRA application link feature with your own JIRA instance and are able to set links between issues in the two JIRA instances this way.

      It would be great to be able to display linked issues from the remote JIRA in your own structures.

      • Show progress of selected issue/task in Confluence

        In our company we use very closely JIRA and Confluence. Structure allows us to properly organize issues based on our demands and workflows and it works perfectly for people who are assigning tasks or implementing them. But we use Confluence for executive summary of progress on specific builds where would be very helpful if we can display progress bar of a specific issue (counted from all issues below of selected issue in the hierarchy). This way we would be able to create great overviews like e.g. "Bug fixing of Feature1", "Implementing Feature2", ... with progress bars behind without a need…

        • Use tokens in the summary to capture recurring fields and indendation levels

          By specifying some fields e.g, priority and assignee as well as the indendation level of the issue while entering the summary text of the issue will speed up the data capturing with structure. Please consider having a look at www.checkvist.com for effective keyboard support for increased speed and useability.

          Eg use the @ to specify the person eg @john
          use the # sign to specify the priority
          Eg #0 - blocker
          #1 critical
          Tab indentation in the summary for instance indentation level 1 specified by 1> indendation level of 2 specified by >2

          >1

          • Navigate to next/previous issue in structure

            We want to have the feature to go to the next issue in the stucture.

            The scenario is:
            1. You have a structure open
            2. You open up the first issue in a full screen mode
            3. You go to the next issue in the structure. Without jumping back to the structure.

            In the same way as you can jump to the next/previous issue after you have performed a filter/search in plain JIRA.

            • I suggest the structure gadget displays the full name of the structure in the dashboards

              Currently it truncates the names so it is difficult to tell which structure is displayed.

              • Add ability to right click on selected item(s) to move to top, to bottom, down/up by like 50/100/200 rows at a time

                This will save time in organizing one's Structure especially those items that are completed and need to be moved way down or those items that are open and need to be brought way up. This would especially be useful when initially setting up one's structure.

                • Show some type of visual indicator when the progress rollup contains interpolated data

                  I love the ability of the structure plug-in to roll-up numerical fields of children into their parents (thank you!). As I understand it, if some of the children do not have values, the roll-up algorithm estimates values for those children based on the values set in their peers (i.e the value of the unset children is the average value from all of their peers). Essentially, the structure plug-in is making estimates for the children even if users haven't entered any information.

                  When that happens, it would be nice if the plug-in offers some kind of indicator on the rolled up…

                    • 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.

                      • Limit Structure Depth for "Master" Structures

                        With all the work being done to create sub-structures or copy portions of structures, the master or enterprise view typically does not need all the detailed subtasks, those will even make that view less usable. It would make that view more useful to have a default depth to open the tree, so if I have
                        Issue-1 - Project
                        Issue-11 - Milestone
                        Issue-111 - task 1
                        Issue-112 - Task 2
                        Issue-2 - Project 2
                        Issue-21 - Milestone
                        etc.

                        I can have structures for the projects with all the details, and the structure for multiple projects defaulting to open to a depth…

                        • Create a method to prevent parental and causal links to sub-tasks unless those sub-tasks have sub-issues

                          if you have issues with sub-task type issues there's no way to pull those sub-tasks and any child or resulted in linked issues into a structure without structure creating child and resulted in links for all sub-task tasks of those parent issues. It appears that any configuration of the links synchronizers will results in the sub-tasks getting child and resulted in links to the parent issue. If this is true, I propose the following feature request.
                          In the Links Synchronizer, create a sub filtering feature that uses the logic of: "don't create parental or causal links for sub-task type issues…

                            • add user stories w/out subtasks automatically to the product backlog by using the greenhopper epic synchronization

                              There is a separate setting to auto include the sub-task, by I am sure I didn't tick the box (I tried it 3 times).
                              It looks like the synchronization is always adding the sub-task regardless if you want them or not. This has worked before but recently I get the sub-task in the product backlog as well. We recently upgraded from 5.7.2 to 5.8.6 so maybe something in 5.8 broke this.

                              • Not show tasks and subtasks when using the GreenHopper's Rank and Epic/Theme fields Syncronize w/ auto-add subtask deselected

                                when selecting the Greenhopper syncronize w/ the epic/theme field selected and the auto-add subtask option deselected, structure is still bringing in tasks and it's subtasks. We were expecting only to see Themes, Epics and Stories in our structure. In addition, when we have Rank syncronize selected as well, it doesn't always line up with Greenhopper.

                                • Have a right click contextual menu instead of the gear and hover that sticks to the far right forcing me to scroll every single time I edit

                                  Right now everytime you edit a structure item (eg change status or Link to another issue) when the screen redraws the focus is forced to the bottom right. This then requires the user to have to scroll first before they can take any further action on a structure item. I find I have to do 10 - 15 unnecessary mouse transaction to edit a test case, block it and then link it to the blocking item

                                    • Allow Better Transitions

                                      By example, we use stories and have them implement features. Our final state for stories is "Closed" and when all stories are closed we want to have the feature change it's state to "Ready for Production" however there doesn't seem to be a way to do that.

                                      To that end, it would be nice if we could say that for state X we could specify what transitions could go there given that its sub-items state may be different.

                                      Example:
                                      Feature Workflow has "In Progress" --- {Ready To Deploy} --->>> "Ready for Production"
                                      Story Workflow has "Verify" --- {Ready To Deploy}…

                                      • Filter the issues that aren't picked up by the generators

                                        To force a rebuild of the structure based on generator rules only.
                                        The filter would help to identify the issues manually added into the structure.
                                        Then we can decide which issues (all or selected) to remove from the structure if not relevant.

                                        Problem: We cannot remove all the issues from the structure. There's a warning when removing at least one issue that is picked up by the generators, and when we acknoledge all the issues come back.

                                        • import from excel

                                          First set of columns each represent a structure level.
                                          Following structure, top row includes field names for data entry (e.g. Story Points, Type=Epic, Story...

                                          (not sure if this will come through or not, but something like this:

                                          |Level1 |Level2|Level3 |Level4 ... |Type |Story Points|

                                          |Jurassic Park|T-Rex|Goat Release| ... |Story |
