Version Highlights

  • Planning Tasks allow you to draft project plans before creating Jira issues.

Changes in Detail

Planning Tasks

Structure Planning Tasks are now the easiest way to plan your next project in Jira, without having to commit your early ideas to Jira issues:

  • Draft your entire project plan: add work, remove work, organize the work, and get everyone aligned before a single Jira issue gets created.
  • Once you're ready, easily convert your entire plan - or just some of your Planning Tasks - into Jira issues.
  • Planning Tasks also work with Generators, Formulas, and Structure.Gantt 4.2+ (releasing soon).

Installation and Upgrade

Pick a Time

We strongly recommend that you install and upgrade your apps during off-peak hours or scheduled maintenance windows. There are known issues in the Jira app infrastructure that may cause performance degradation and impede app installation when your Jira instance is under heavy load.

Installing Structure

If your Jira server does not have Structure yet, the installation is simple:

  1. Download and install Structure app, either from the Atlassian Marketplace or our Download page.
  2. When Add-on Manager reports the successful installation, click Get Started to visit a page with important guidance for the Jira administrator. You may want to also check out the user's Get Started page, available under the "Structure" top-level menu.
  3. Monitor catalina.out or jira-application.log for log messages from Structure.

Upgrading Structure

The upgrade procedure from versions 3.0–9.2 is simple:

  1. Consider backing up Jira data. Use Administration | System | Backup System. (If you have a large instance and a proper backup strategy in place, you may skip this step.)
  2. Back up Structure data. Use Administration | Structure | Backup Structure menu item. If you have a lot of structures and a large Jira, consider turning off the "Backup History" option to avoid a long backup process.
  3. Install the new version of the app.

  4. Monitor catalina.out or jira-application.log for warnings or errors.

Enterprise Deployment Notes

Conversion of 15,000 Planning tasks can take ~ 1h. We also improved how Structure works with scripted fields.

There are no special tests needed, so we suggest the usual testing procedures you’ve done for previous upgrades.
