Copy the Product Requirement Blueprint?

Our Product Management team uses a single Space for multiple products. The products are very closely related and this system helps both teams stay in sync with the other project. We'd like to use the product requirement blueprint but need to maintain separate lists. We'd like to have two product blueprints with list and index for each product.

Basically, I want to copy and rename the existing blueprint so I end up with Prod A Product Requirements and Prod B Product Requirements in the left sidebar. The index is looking for the requirement label. I should be able to simply add another lable to display the correct reqs in each list. Right?

I hate it when someone suggests a solution to functionality Atlassian should provide, is to install their plugin (and pay for it.) Cost usually isn't an issue where I work but logistics of acquiring and installing plugins are.

What I have found so far in my attempts to answer this same question is that I can simply copy the content of the blueprint to a template (name it slightly different when saving it). The only functionality that is lost (that I've discovered so far) is the automatic assignment of the Document owner in the requirement table at the top of the page, to the page creator. The page creator is available right above the table, under the page title so the entry in the table is superfluous on page origination. If requirement ownership is transferred to an individual other than the creator, this will be a manual change and an entry (Current Req Owner) can be added to the table at that time. The page creator doesn't change.

Oh and wouldn't it be nice if you could configure a pick list for the status macro when using it in a template? Be able to pick Grey with the title Draft, Yellow with Submitted, Blue with In Test & Green with Completed.

Hi Sally,

Our Add-on Page Tree Creator works a bit different than the Confluence blueprints / templates. The PTC-templates are based on normal confluence pages. So you can build different PTC-templates to fulfill your needs. We also will add the possibility to add labels when the page is created over a PTC-Button.

Try our Live Examples (no registration needed).

Hi Sally,

I'm obviously struggling with the same issue. I'm pretty new to Confluence, so please accept my apologies if my questions are stupid:

  • How did you copy the default Product Requirement blueprint?
  • The default Product Requirement has the label "requirements" which is used by the Product Requirement Index page. How did you manage to remove this label in your copied blueprint and add another one? I tried to add a label "test" to the product requirement template but in the content I still see only the label "requirements"

Thanks and Best Regards
