Adding Existing Issues

This option is only available for structures built in Power mode. For structures built in Speed mode, modify the structure to add or remove existing issues.

To add existing issues to a structure, open the Add menu and select Search and Add.

Search for Issues

You can locate issues from Jira using a JQL or Text search.

  • Text Search - Search for word(s) or a specific phrase (placed in quotes).
  • JQL Search - Specify conditions using Jira fields. For more information about JQL, see the Atlassian guide to Advanced searching.

Search and add items

When entering a JQL query, auto-complete will suggest fields, operators and values as you type. It will also check that the JQL query is valid:

 a green checkmark icon will appear if the query is valid

 a red exclamation icon will appear if the query is invalid

Selecting Issues

Once you have a list of results, you can:

  • Select just the issues you want to include in your structure and click Add selected. If your query returns more than 30 issues, you can scroll between pages and select issues on multiple pages.
  • Click Add All to place every issue in your structure. This will include all issues on all pages of results.

In either case, the issues you've selected will be added to your structure directly below the currently-selected item.

Add Results as a Search Inserter Automation

You also have the option to turn your query into a Generator. This will add all of your search results to the structure and automatically update the structure as issues change in Jira.

To add your query as an Insert generator, simply click the Automation button at the bottom of the search results window.
