Jira Structure Formula help (Parent Link summary)

Hi All,

I have a question about how to get a Name of Initiative from Epic level in Structure Field Formula?

If I'm using Field Parent Link I have Jira ID - Summary

If I'm using this.ParentLink I have only Jira ID


My structure organized in a way that I have

Level 1 - fixVersion grouping

Level 2 - Epic's assigned to fixVersion

Level 3 - Stories assigned to Epics


All Epics assigned via Parent Link to some Initiatives.


Thank you.

Hi Eugene,

If you group your epics by their parent link then you can do this very easily with a formula like:

if type = "epic" : PARENT{summary}

However I'm guessing you only want the summary without actually including the issues in the board.  If so I don't think there is a way to do this presently.
