    Good within itself, it has a pretty good UI and set of features for managing a hierarchy of issues, reminiscent of MS Project. For planning purposes, it's excellent. It also has a nice overview of progress in the hierarchy. However, the fit within the rest of JIRA is not so great. For example: - All nodes within the hierarchy are tasks, so in other views it's not possibly to distinguish which things are really jobs to do and which are just categories. - Creating an issue through normal JIRA methods does not put it anywhere in the structure (though they are working on an enhancement) - you have to create it through the custom structure issue creation - It's tedious to add an existing issue into the structure - It's difficult to filter against structure in useful ways. Although they provide an Advanced JQL function to do a little bit of filtering, it's not something easy to use, and it's limited. - There's little coherence between Structure and JIRA Agile - they conflict over how to organise issues. I found that throughout our project, the issues were constantly getting out of synch with Structure, so it was a battle to keep the structure useful.

    Vendor response

    Aaron, thanks for the extensive review! I agree there are things that could be made better in Structure, and we're working on them! Right now we're working on a major new version, Structure 3.0, which will let you create structures containing not only tasks, but any other items (including just grouping markers). It will also let you quickly get "generated" structures by some formula, much like a search result. Better integration with JIRA's Create Issue dialog and adding issues is coming even sooner in Structure 2.7. For the Agile integration, I agree it could be a challenge to configure everything in an optimal way. We've got a series of articles in our blog that explore this - check out http://almworks.com/blog.html . Finally, feel free to reach out to our support at support@almworks.com if you need help or advice. -- Kind regards, Igor

    This is a truly awesome plugin. It's crazy how many features are packed in for the price. The only thing better than the plugin is the support provided by the ALM crew. The world would be a better place if more admins bought this thing so ALM can hire more devs and new Structure features could be produced even faster. Don't get me wrong Igor - you guys are already damn fast. Check out their pipeline here: http://structure.uservoice.com/forums/43181-structure-plugin-for-jira-ideas/filters/top

    One of the best plugins available for JIRA. The guys at ALM Works are extremely responsive to enquiries and receptive to further developing the product to meet specific business needs. I'm not sure our JIRA adoption would be anywhere without it.

    Aside from being a useful plugin, Structure comes complete with an easy-to-use API that we used to access Structure data from within our own custom plugin. On top of that, the API documentation was fantastic - much more than I ever expected and certainly makes integrating with Structure straight forward. Oh, and to top it off the vendor responses were quick and helpful!

    Paid-via-Atlassian pricing FAQ

    How does add-on pricing work?

    Just like your Atlassian host application, there are two pricing models for add-ons. Pick the model that matches your Atlassian product, and the same rules apply:

    Server pricing:

    • Products and add-ons are hosted on your servers.
    • Licenses last forever and include 12 months of maintenance (support and version updates).
    • You can renew maintenance after 12 months at 50% of the original purchase price.
    • You can upgrade the tier of your host product and add-on licenses at any time. Upgrade prices are calculated based on Atlassian's formula (view example).

    Cloud pricing:

    • Products and add-ons are hosted by Atlassian.
    • You are eligible for support and automatic version updates as long as your subscription is active.
    • Your subscription automatically renews every month. Annual pricing is also available.
    • Your pricing tier for host products and add-ons is automatically upgraded (as necessary) when you add users to your instance.
    How do I determine my pricing tier?

    Choose the same user tier you pay for in the Atlassian host application. For example, if you have a JIRA Server license for 25 users, you should purchase this tier.

    Even if fewer users want to use the add-on than your host application license, the two licenses should match exactly.

    Do you offer academic, community, or open-source licenses?

    Add-on purchase and renewal is half-price if you have an academic license for your Atlassian host application.

    Add-ons are always free for community and open-source licenses.

    For more details about qualifying for special licenses, see here.

    Can I extend my free trial?

    You can extend your Server add-on trial up to 5 times - in other words, for up to six months. Extend your trial by generating a new evaluation license key from Atlassian Marketplace. Click Free Trial and you'll be directed to generate a license at MyAtlassian. Paste this license key into the add-on listing in UPM from your Atlassian host application, and you're all set.

    You cannot extend your Cloud free evaluation period. All Cloud add-ons are immediately subscribed by a user, and we provide a free evaluation of period. This is a minimum of 30 days and ends on the second billing cycle after you first subscribe to the add-on.

    How can I buy add-ons for my legacy JIRA or Confluence license?

    If you own a legacy JIRA Unlimited (100+ users) or Confluence Unlimited (2000+ users) license purchased in 2012 or earlier, legacy add-on pricing is no longer available. You have two options for add-on purchasing:

    • Purchase the add-on at the non-legacy Unlimited (10000+ users) tier.
    • Renew your JIRA or Confluence license at a non-legacy tier, then purchase the add-on at the same tier.
