  1. 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".

    • Command line interface to backup database

      We have scripted the back up of our mysql jira database to run several times a day using mysqldump. We would like to initiate a structure backup from the same script. This is really the only way we can ensure that the jira database and the structure database can stay in sync in case we need to restore. We cannot use the xml jira backup because we have other databases in our instance that must also be backed up at the same time as jira. Is there a command line interface for the xml backup?

      • 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.

        • Use lightboxes when managing structure properties

          Currently when editing a structure (Operations->Configure), you are throw into a new page for editing. When you are finished and go back, the structure list reloads and moves you to the top and I cannot find my place anymore. This is a problem when you are viewing a list of over a thousand structures.

          A popup lightbox would make things much better and allow me to keep my place in the list of structures. This could apply to sync settings, and all other management operations.

          • [Structure+Testy] Make it possible to have a type of parent child relation inside an issue

            Use Case 1:
            As a tester I would like to use a unique test case and run it several times and after every run I would like to add my test data/environment to it. (E.g. Result and what format, browser, platform, DB that was used during test run...)

            Use Case 2:
            As a Test Manager I would like to be able to create a dashboard report or filter based on specific data and the outcome of the result with that test data/environment.

            Current solution with testy today (https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.almworks.testy)
            has some good features but you still lack the method…

            • 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.

              • Possibility to disable/filter the Structure notifications in the project & user Activity Streams

                Currently only the Actitvity Stream "gadget" has the option to configure filters.
                The standard (non-gadget) Jira Activity Stream on the Project Summary page & on the User profile page does not have this option. Hence these Activity Streams are heavily 'polluted" with Syncronizer updates and are becoming useless..

                • Calculate context-aware Progress

                  When displaying structures in a specific context (for example, after selecting a specific Version from the Project view), the Progress roll-up should be done in the context of that version.

                  For example, assume I have an Epic containing multiple stories which will be completed across several releases. If I view the structure in the context of the upcoming release, it would be nice if the Progress calculation were based solely on those stories targeted for the upcoming release.

                  • 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…

                                  • a button in the tool bar to "show only my issues"

                                    one of the most useful quick filters in Greenhopper is the "show only my issues" filter. It would be fantastic if Structure had this top level quick filter in its toolbar as well.

                                      Do you have prepared structure for translating structure. SWe need a German version.

                                      • 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…
