Hi Yuvi,

There are a few reasons this may be happening, so I am going to provide a guess here. It is possible that the automation in the structure brings in all the issues, including the stories, using the Insert generator, and then when the story gets link to Epic, it is shown using the Extend generator as well. This particular situation is quite common and there is a special kind of Filter generator to resolve it, called "Remove Inserter/Extender duplicates". If you add this generator to your structure, then root level stories will disappear as soon as they are added under Epic. Please, try if it helps.

If not, then some additional description of the problem is needed - which generators are used to build the structure, where the duplicated issues appear exactly and how they are added to the structure - step by step.

Hi Egor,

I have a same issue and I am using cloud plugin version and I dont see an option "Remove Inserter/Extender duplicates". Please help me with this

Hello, Sai,

Cloud version of Structure has a lot of limitations compared to server/DC version, but we are constantly working on improving it. You can keep a track of changes using this link

And this is our roadmap for Structure Cloud.

Hello, @Egor Tasa [ALM Works], are the differences between Cloud/DC-server less now? can we have a table of currently unsupported features on the cloud?

Please add Remove Inserter/Extender duplicates to cloud.
