How can I refresh to get inserted tasks ordered correctly?

Hi - using filter syncroniser - filter sorts by "required date" (custom field).

In the absence of sorting, need to somehow refresh perhaps once a day so it rebuilds the issues from scratch capturing any where required date has been added or changed, and puts them in the correct order.

Any way of clearing down / recreating the tree? Tried auto-resync plugin

Hi Dom, there's no straightforward way to achieve this (it will be there in Structure 3.0!)

Currently, if you're using scheduled-resync already, a possible hack would be to set up a schedule of resyncs in this order:

  1. Use a Filter synchronizer to remove everything from the structure. Use a JQL that is never true and select "Remove Mode"
  2. Use your Filter synchronizer and other to populate the structure

However, if there are other synchronizers, they may react poorly to the issues being removed - depending on the synchronizer. Please make sure to experiment on a small set of issues and a separate structure first.
