Structure 3.0 is the biggest update to the Structure add-on for JIRA since its debut in 2010.
It's also the longest-awaited release, nearly three years in the making and bringing with it more new features than any other major version.
We've rebuilt and revised everything, from the deepest inner workings right up to the buttons you see in your browser. The result is a leaner, faster, prettier and more powerful Structure for your organizing pleasure.
Structure power for your project and portfolio managing pleasure
That also means there's a lot of new stuff to get the hang of, so here's a list of all the resources we've created to help you and your users get started and find your way around as quickly as possible.
When upgrading, some additional steps are required to migrate Structure 2.x data to the new 3.x version.
Please follow the upgrade instructions in the release notes carefully!
We've created a brand-new quickstart guide right inside Structure - you can access it from the 'Get Started' option in the Structure menu in the main JIRA navigation bar.
It gives a clear & concise overview of the operating principles and main functions of the Structure plugin, so it's worth sending a link to this page to everyone who may need to work with the Structure plugin.
We've also published a more in-depth quickstart guide in our online documentation. This one highlights the features that are new in 3.0 to make it easier for existing users to adapt quickly from 2.x versions of Structure, and provides more information about how the new features work.
This feature-length demonstration of Structure 3.0 covers pretty much everything you need to know about the updated interface and new features.
Structure.Testy has been updated for compatibility with Structure 3.0 and is ready to install from Atlassian Marketplace.
Our next extension will be Structure.Pages, an extension for Structure 3.x that allows you to work with Confluence pages alongside JIRA issues in the Structure board. Follow the link above and sign up for updates to be among the first to know when it's released!
All the installation .jar files for Structure 3.x and extensions are available for download, including the Structure.Pages beta.
In case you missed all the announcements in emails and on the S3 website, with the release of Structure 3.0 we've increased prices for license tiers above 250 users. Here's a quick explanation of how it works:
The new prices only affect tiers above 250 users, and only take immediate effect for new customers.
Existing customers will be able to renew at the pre-update price until June 6th 2016.
If you are a customer or Atlassian Expert with an existing purchase or renewal quote from us, it will remain applicable for the duration of its validity.
Please contact ALM Works support if you have any questions.
Once we've released Structure.Pages, we'll begin working on our long backlog of new features for Structure 3.x.
