Best way in JIRA cloud to create a Gantt chart with dependencies?


Greetings Atlassian users !

I used to have JIRA Data Center and we used Structure to create some compelling project plans to share with engineering managers and business leaders. 

Now that I am using JIRA cloud, I find that Structure is no longer an option. Regular Roadmaps do not span project boards so that limits what I can do. What are  people using to create view of work spread out over a timeline? What is the equivalent of Structure in JIRA Cloud ?

Hi, @Symantha Gates (and @Aaron Gage).

As @Joseph Chung Yin's response highlights, Structure and Structure.Gantt are definitely available for Jira Cloud.

It sounds to me like Symantha's organization just failed to implement it when they migrated to Jira Cloud. They may have had their reasons, or maybe it was just an oversight.

Another thing to consider: The Jira Cloud UI is different that Jira Server. Structure will not be found on the topline/main menu.  It would be found under Apps.Screen Shot 2022-05-06 at 2.21.23 PM.png

You may already know this. Just making sure. :)

If you still don't see it, I suggest you check with your Jira admin., Symantha.

Hope this helps,

@Symantha Gates -

Structure and Structure Gantt are available in the Cloud envs.  You will just need to find them the Marketplace.

NOTE - You will need Structure first before you can use Structure Gantt add-on.

However, have you look into Advanced Roadmap for Jira (which is a part of the Jira Software FREE if your subscription is at the Premium level)

Hope this helps.

Wow, no structure for cloud.... It's the best part about our JIRA.  Note to self, don't go to cloud.
