It would be great, If there would be a way to add the Folders to the Structure that use the Insert issues Automation. Now I get the message:
You are about to create folder Folder. It will be impossible to add it to the structure because of the automation installed: Cannot add items to JQL query result. You can drag-and-drop the item to a different location.
Looking forward to your answer.
Tatiana, you are very welcome!
The feature is currently in our internal tracker, but I've added a link to this question so we'll provide an update here as soon as we have some news. And I also added your vote there too
If you want, I can also create a corresponding issue in our public JIRA too - just let me know.
Thank you for the fast response.
Yes we are already using the grouping automation. But we really like the Folder feature to fast group the issues manually, without creation of new custom fields.
Can you send us the link for the improvement to know when you plan to implement it and maybe to give some votes? :)
I was hoping for the same thing—but Tatiana et al, if it helps, I found that I was able to add folders to a structure that uses a synchronizer (one that I had migrated from v2). My sense is that ALM Works isn't necessarily recommending synchronizers, and I could imagine them possibly being deprecated in the future...but for now, this could be a way to go.
Synchronizing is more hidden in the interface...you'll find the settings for doing so in a Sync With column under Manage Structures. And, I think Synced structures don't allow one issue to appear twice...but to me, folders is the more useful feature, so I'm probably going to go this route for now.
Hope this helps!
I'm curious if there is any timeline to when Structure is intending to release this enhancement? Using fields is not really a solution for our use case. The number of sub-folders and breakdown of milestones in our company is quite variable. If I knew you were releasing this feature in the next 6-8 weeks, I could hold off on figuring out an alternative. Next month? Next 3 months? Later this year? Maybe 2018?
If you spend enough time as a Jira admin - whether you are managing a single, mid-sized instance, a large enterprise one or juggling multiple instances at once - you will eventually find yourself in ...
