Structure plugin lets you organize JIRA issues into hierarchy. It is a versatile tool that can greatly expand the ways you can use JIRA for Project Management, Requirements Management, QA and Help Desk.
With Structure, you can maintain a big picture of all projects in the company, have common view of the overall progress, build requirements lists and test plans, organize help desk, prioritize backlogs, visualize links between issues or create a personal to-do list.
Issue hierarchy may have any depth (sub-issues, sub-sub-issues and so on), and contain issues from multiple projects and of any issue type.
A structure may include important tasks and milestones from all projects in the company, and provide overview of the progress for the management — in Jira or in an Excel report.
Whether it's a new employee checklist or a test plan, you can save time and effort by cloning a pre-populated template structure instead of creating all the issues by hand.
When issues are collected into meaningful structures, you can quickly browse them and see the context of each issue.
Track total time spent, total estimation or overall progress — Structure aggregates this information upwards through the hierarchy.
Get a single view of an already existing hierarchical relationships, represented as issue links, sub-tasks or Agile Epic-Story links.
Structure plugin has a well-documented API, allowing integration with your existing infrastructure through additional custom-made Jira add-ons. Extensions like Structure.Testy and Structure.Pages are an example of what can be achieved with the API.
One strong business case is that with Structure, we can do proper iteration planning based on the Time Sum columns.Hyper Coral White Light Magenta Textile Converse Chuck Pale Hyper Ox Mixed — Lars Lundegård, Saab Group
