we are currently evaluating the Structure plugin and it looks really good so far. It provides an easy way to add, manage, and visualize tasks.
We have a few questions about its integration with another Jira plugin: Jira Agile.
Again, the plugin is really awesome. If the things mentioned above cannot be achieve in the normal way, is there a workaround, another plugin, or any other thing that can help us achieve that?
Thanks for using the Structure plugin and for the great feedback!
In order of questions:
first of all, thank you for your quick reply.
Here is more a more detailed exxplanation of the problems I am having:
0) Initial configuration doesn't reflect Jira board
1) Reordering Stories inside Structure doesn't reflect in Jira Board
2) Reordering Sub-Tasks not working
I'll try adding the column for the Sprint.
my last question (I promise!!!)... I added the Sprint field to the Edit screen and as a column to my view in Structure. Everything works perfectly, but I need to enter the Sprint ID as a number (for instance, "76"). Any way to allow me enter it as a string, like "Sprint 4"?
Thank you one more time!
Martim, no worries! Keep them coming.
Unfortunately no, the Sprint field in JIRA only takes the sprint ID. Sprint names in JIRA Agile are not unique.
A quick way to get a sprint ID without leaving Structure is to go to the search bar, switch to JQL and type "search =" and start typing the sprint name. Find the sprint you want in the auto-complete suggestions, and its ID will be in brackets at the end.
Here's the screenshot of my current Structure Sync Settings: http://screencast.com/t/jbGStJP6
And here are the issues that I'm facing:
Thank you so much for your help!
PS: Do you work for Structure? And also is it possible to schedule a time and jump in a skype call so you can sort my questions out? I will be more than happy to pay for it :)
Hi Martim, it's no trouble at all, happy to help!
A quick diagnosis from the screenshot - your Agile synchronizer is set up to sync with the wrong board. Disable or delete that synchronizer and set up a new one, this time be sure sure to select the 'MARTIM TEST' Scrum board in the list of Agile boards.
Leave all the boxes ticked, create, resync and enable, everything should work fine. If not, let me know :)
For reference: JIRA Agile synchronizer documentation.
Those side-by-side screencasts rock.
