Can I apply formatting to Structure views?

The views of Structure plugin are very dry and unfriendly on the eye when working with even the most modest size Structure. Is there any way to apply formatting? What I'm hoping for is probably some way to define conditional format rules based on JQL/SJQL.

Hello Marc,

I'm afraid this is not possible at the moment. Please vote for this feature in our JIRA:

Also, can you please provide some more details or an example for the case you refer too (format based on JQL/SJQL)? This would help us understand what users are looking for and implement the feature in way that works for everyone.

Kind regards,


Please add my +1! I'm not able to vote (need a login for the ALM Works JIRA). This feature would be invaluable for improved usability of our board. Thanks!

Condition is based on JQL and just selects out the items to be formatted. Common sense rules on applying multiple conditions can be found in many applications

The format to apply would be defined some other way (don't know if thre is any standard here).

  • Different colouring by jira project (ABC-123 is green, DEF-123 is blue).
    • condition: project = ABC
  • Bold/+1em for anything with children (that little triangle is way too small and delicate).
    • condition: ancestor
  • I see others asking for formatting based on missed due dates etc

A library of templates for common conditions would probably be nice


Please reference this page from HJ-1945 and (especially)  HJ-1828. I'm not going to register for another public JIRA tracker smile You would get much better community participation if you used OpenID or similar.


Thanks for the details! I'll add this to our JIRA.
