The Agile Hierarchy Builder preset allows you to quickly visualize any project (or multiple projects) in a traditional Agile hierarchy (Epics > Stories/Tasks > Sub-tasks).
The Agile Hierarchy Builder works for both Classic and Next-Gen projects, and it allows you to combine both types of projects into a single structure.
Build a New Structure Using the Agile Hierarchy Builder
To build a new structure using the Agile Hierarchy Builder, click the Automation button to turn on Automation Editing mode. Then click the + button and select Presets.
This will display the Presets options. Select Agile Hierarchy...
The Agile Hierarchy Builder creates your hierarchy based on the epics from selected Agile boards or projects. To begin, choose whether you want to pull the epics from boards or projects. Then add the boards or projects you want to include.
Once you click Apply, Structure will add a series of generators to:
- Add the epics from each selected boards/projects (JQL/Text Inserter or Agile Board Inserter)
- Add stories or tasks under each epic (Stories Under Epics Extender and Next-Gen Hierarchy Extender)
- Add sub-tasks beneath the stories and tasks (Sub-task Extender and Next-Gen Hierarchy Extender)
Adding the Agile Hierarchy Builder to an Existing Structure
The Agile Hierarchy Builder can also be added to existing structures. In this case, in addition to creating an Agile hierarchy for all epics in the selected projects/boards, it will also extend existing epics, stories and tasks in the structure, provided they are in its scope (see Generator Scope for details).
It will not add epics to stories already in the structure or add stories to sub-tasks already in the structure.
Closing Automation Editing Mode
To close Automation Editing mode and hide the list of generators, click the Automation button in the toolbar again.
