Structure with link generator

I have a project in JIRA containing issues that are hierarchically linked through Issue links as parent-child issues. Now I would like to create a Structure with:

  • Insert generator to add only the issues without a link to a parent
  • Extend generator to add all issues with a link to a parent

The question is: how to do that?

Hi Frank,

Thanks for your question. Right now the only way to do it is to use some add-on that provides functions related to links (Script Runner or JQL Tricks) - then you can create a query for the inserter that only returns issues without incoming links.

We understand this is a frequent use case and it's pretty high in our backlog for generators improvements.
