Download the latest version of Structure and its Extensions

Try It: Structure Sandbox Server (no installation required)


1. Patch Release

Structure 6.1.1 fixes an issue with Advanced Wiki Markup in formulas and descriptions, and adds Advanced Roadmaps (former Portfolio) 3.29 support.

2. 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 plugin infrastructure that may cause performance degradation and impede app installation when your Jira instance is under heavy load.

2.1. 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.

2.2. Upgrading Structure

The upgrade procedure from versions 3.0–6.1 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 plugin.

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

2.3. Upgrading from Structure 2.9–2.11

If you have a Structure version older than 2.9, please upgrade to Structure 2.11.2 version first.

Starting with version 6.0, Structure is no longer able to access the old Structure 2.x database, but old backup files are still supported. Therefore, you'll need to back up your Structure 2.x data before upgrading. The recommended upgrade procedure is as follows:

  1. While still running the old version of Structure, go to Administration | Structure | Structure Backup and create a backup of the current Structure data.
  2. Download and install Structure 6.0, either from the Atlassian Marketplace or our Download page.
  3. When the 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 Structure Quick Start Guide.
  4. To transfer your data, go to Administration | Structure | Restore Structure and use the Structure 2.x backup made earlier.

  5. Monitor catalina.out or jira-application.log for log messages from Structure.
