Highlight scope change in Jira Structure sprint overview

We are using Jira Structure to provide high level overview of the current sprint.
This structure shows all stories in the current spint and the progress of the subtasks for these stories.

We would like to visualise scope changes in the sprint. 
I was playing around with a formula column and wiki markup and using 
issuefunction in addedAfterSprintStart('Board name') but I am not able to get the syntax right. 

Who is able to help me out?

Hi @Floor Verschure 

Please, note that you cannot use JQL directly in the formula, but you can use JQL Query as a variable. This will work as a boolean variable, returning 1 for issues that match the query.

Thanks Egor, 

Figured it out indeed. For scope change i have added the following:
if (scope_change,"+")
in the variable i used query match with the query below
(issuefunction in addedAfterSprintStart("BOARD NAME"))

What I would like instead of an additional column is to replace the current Key Column and add a star to it if it was added after sprint start and also a ! if there is an impediment on a story. 

Is it possible to create something like this?

KR, Floor

Hi Floor,


Essentially, you can remove key column and instead use Formula column with Wiki-markup


CONCAT (if (scope_change,"+"), " ", key)

Add criteria for ! and you can expand the formula

CONCAT (if (scope_change,"+"), if(impediment, "!") " ", key)

or even using markup icons

CONCAT (if (scope_change,"(+)"), if(impediment, "(!)") " ", key)



Exactly what i was looking for. The icons do not show up yet now showing (+) and (!), but i'll look into fixing that later. 
Also the link in the URL is removed (not sure if I am going to miss it) when using concat and the Key field. 

You'll have to change Formula's format to Wiki-Markup for these to be rendered.
