Use Structure with linked JIRA instances

HEy,

We are trying out Structure and have two JIRA instances linked together with Application Links.

Is it possible to have issues from both instances in the same structure?

Thnx in advance!

Hi Svante,

I'm afraid this is not possible at the moment, but this was requested before, so once we release the new major version - Structure 3.0, we'll see what can be done in this direction. It should be possible to show some sort of issue copies with a number of fields. They won't be the real fully functional issues, but will be good enough for seeing the general overview of the progress across several JIRAs and other similar tasks.

What is the use case that you have? If you can provide some more details, we'd be really grateful.

Thank you,

Thnx for your response! My use-case would be to use Structure in a Federated JIRA setup. Being able to "group" issues from different JIRA instances into one common structure

Right! But how much of the jira functionality would you expect? Do I understand correctly that the main use case would be just seeing all issues altogether with progresses and statuses for tracking purposes? That should be doable, but for example, implementing editing for the issues from another JIRA right in the structure would be more complicated.

Ahh, got what you mean! No, my use-case would just include the tracking purpose. If you need to update the issue you should do that from the origin instance. I understand that it would be extremely challenging to update an issue remotely :-)
