(I'm editing question as a more refined user story has been defined.)
As a PO, we would like to do analysis on teams and there past sprints. We are attempting to use the Sprint field to filter thru issues (using Structure).
At the end of a Sprint, when the sprint is marked as complete (finished) in JIRA Agile, the values of the Sprint field, on the issues in that sprint, are being set to null. There is a Jira Agile field for the Completed Sprint that holds a reference similar to the value previously held in Sprint.
Could you provide more details about the issues that have been attributed to installation of the Structure add-on?
If you are experiencing problems with Structure or you believe that it is causing problems elsewhere, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Three things drive this opinion here:
1) Structure was the last thing added (or updated) on our Jira install.
2) We have users creating structures that are not familiar with all the ins and outs of Structure. We end up with Structures that sometimes impact projects outside of there intended scope. I do not have all the details on the many behaviours we have observed.
3) Everyone loves scape goats as they present easy targets when things go wrong. Structure is the current scape goat.
If you do suspect it is structure's fault, can you please provide more details via email (email@example.com) or via our JIRA (https://jira.almworks.com) and we'll be happy to help you sort this out.
Regarding your second point - creating structures should not cause any issues with JIRA. The only potential source of problems can be incorrectly configured synchronizers. To avoid this, we've added additional permissions for the synchronizers, so you can choose which users can create and run them. You can find more details in our wiki: https://wiki.almworks.com/x/pwIcAQ
I hope this helps.
