Hello @Martin Härri 

Dionathan with ALM Works here.

You could use the following sample formula and let me know how it goes (PS: this formula will work only on the latest versions of Structure (V7.0 +)):


issueLinks.FILTER($.type.outward = "is parent of" AND $.destination = this).MAP($.source.key CONCAT ' - ' CONCAT $.source.summary)




issueLinks.FILTER($.type.inward = "is parent of" AND $.destination = this).MAP($.source.key CONCAT ' - ' CONCAT $.source.summary)


depending on your setup.


Basically, it is filtering the issue links by "Is parent of" and it should show the Issue Key + Summary in a Formula Column.


Please refer to this article for more information about Item Property Reference


If any further questions, let me know.

Best Regards,
Dionathan L 

Brilliant, that's exactly what I was looking for, thanks a lot, Dionathan!

Customization in Board is not possible as of now in Jira Work Management Template Projects.

If you need configurations you can choose to create a kanban board where you will have more control over how cards can be displayed.


Hi Pramodh, I don't think your answer is related to my question, I was talking about Structure from ALMWorks, not kanban boards
