Dark Feature - Synchronizers are hidden by default

We recommend using Automation instead of Synchronizers. Automation is safer, provides additional functionality and flexibility, and uses fewer system resources.

To enable synchronizers, see Advanced Configuration and Dark Features.

There are several bundled synchronizers included with Structure. Other synchronizers can be provided by other Jira add-ons.

  • Sub-Tasks SynchronizerThe Sub-Tasks Synchronizer automatically places sub-tasks under their respective parent issues in the structure.
  • Filter SynchronizerThe Filter Synchronizer automatically adds issues to a structure or removes issues from a structure based on a Saved Filter or a JQL query.
  • Links SynchronizerThe Links Synchronizer maintains issue links between parent issues and child issues.
  • Agile SynchronizerThe Agile Synchronizer lets you synchronize the position of issues in the structure and on an Agile board (such as a Scrum or Kanban board) using Rank synchronization, and synchronize Epic fields with the position of stories under epics in the structure.
  • Status Rollup SynchronizerThe Status Rollup synchronizer automatically aggregates statuses of the sub-issues and updates the status of the parent issue. For example, if all sub-issues are Resolved, it can update the parent issue's status to Resolved.

Synchronizers are a now a dark feature, meaning they are hidden from users by default. To enable synchronizers, use the Structure Dark Features and Fine Tuning Interface.
