My question is related to GreenHopper new Boards and configuration of the project issue types..
When looking back to the past if using Classic Boards then accepting Scrum Template was automatically assigning GreenHopper Scrum Issue Type Scheme to the project.. This scheme was including Epic, Story, Bug, Improvement and Technical Task issue types..
Currently when using new view if you creating a new project from Getting Started page under Agile tab you get by default a clean SCRUM board however the difference is that all schemes associated to that project are JIRA default schemes. In order to have Epic, Story, Bug, Improvement and Technical Task we need to manually accept the scheme.. Is this intended?
If we already are using Epic issue type.. is this somehow connected with the new Epic feature that is introduced in GreenHopper 6.1.x or after switching to that version there is no need to use that kind of issue type anymore?
Thanks you for your answers!
Couple of points:
Thank you for explaining this in more details!
In order to answer your question.. As you mentioned when you create a project then it have automatically associated all default schemes.. When using old way, after accepting the project to use GreenHopper Scrum Template it was automatically changing current issue types to GreenHopper Issue Type Screen Scheme which was including (Epic, Story, Bug, New Feature/Improvement and Technical Task.. ) ..
Currently when you will create a project using GreenHopper then it automatically associating it with a SCRUM Board, but the issue types remains untouched. This means that the default issue type scheme will be used and you will have all issue types available that are used in your instance.
That is the reason when you need to manually change the issue type to accept scrum schemes even if you are using SCRUM Board.. In my opinion this should be done automatically.
Ah, now I understood.
EDIT: You should not face any issue using the Default Scheme, since it includes every issue type that is present in the system. Right?
If you default scheme is not including all the issue types in the instance, that is a different error all together.
I do not have any issues with using GreenHopper after creating a project but I was wondering why it cannot automatically accept only agile issue types.. I do not need ~ 100 issue types that are included in Default Scheme because when I want to create an issue all of them are available..
If I am creating a project using GreenHopper it is automaticaly setting up SCRUM board so default issue types should be (Epic, Story, Bug, Improvement, Technical Task - releted to SCRUM methodology) as it was in the old way of enabling GreenHopper for JIRA project. Now even I did created a project using GreenHopper I need to manually accept non-default scheme to have only those issues that I want.
On one hand SCRUM but on the other issue types not related by default to SCRUM..
In that case how this will work.. I am currently using Epic issue type to track epics and I want to do a upgrade to the latest version of GreenHopper.. How to ensure that all epics will be handled by new feature? Is there some kind of option to convert them or I will need to manually add epic by epic then remove all epic issues and finally epic issue type from the scheme?
I never tried it, but I would say that creating GreenHoper 6.1 Epic issues and populate them from any existing previous data, is not difficult by using the JIRA Java API.
And keeping the relationships between Epics and the rest of the issues by populating the Epic Link custom field.
I was wondering why it cannot automatically accept only agile issue types.. I do not need ~ 100 issue types that are included in Default Scheme because when I want to create an issue all of them are available..
why don't you create a new issue type scheme and select only those you really want to have in your project?
Actually I am doing that.. that is the problem.. Let me explain my point ..
If there is an option that from GreenHopper I am able to create projects and those projects are automatically associated with a brand new Board which is a SCRUM type of board.. then from my understanding I should see automatically GreenHopper Default Issue Type Scheme assigned to my project instead of JIRA Default Issue Type Scheme..
In this GreenHopper Default Issue Type Scheme there should be a only issues related to Agile SCRUM methodology.. Epics, Stories, Tasks..(SCRUM is a SCRUM.. there should be only standard issue types) .. as it was in the old GreenHopper with Classic Boards..
As a admin I should be able to modify this GreenHopper Default Issue Type Scheme to include other issue types if I want to have more than those default..
If I need to manually associate my personal issue type scheme then I do not see any value from creating projects from GreenHopper. Having in mind that this is also problematic to check who can even use this feature (https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/122236/greenhopper-creating-new-jira-projects-from-getting-started-page) then in my opinion this feature should be changed/fixed or even completely removed from GreenHopper.
