Opens the Jira Create Issue dialog. Select Create to create the new requirement or issue and add it to the selected folder.
Opens the create folder dialog, where you enter a name and a description for the new folder. The names of folders within one parent folder must be unique. Select Create to create the new folder below the selected one.
Opens the create baseline dialog, which allows you to enter a name and an optional description for the new baseline. Select Create to create a new baseline for the folder.
Add existing issues
Opens the Add Existing Issues dialog, where the following possibilities are available:
The first option (Add all issues) adds all issues in the project that are not already in the tree.
The second option (Add issues from filter) adds issues matching the provided filter or JQL query.
The third option (Search for issues) allows selecting recently viewed issues.
The fourth option (Move issues) adds issues matching the provided filter or JQL query, regardless whether they are already in the tree or not. Issues that match the filter that are are already present in the tree will be moved to the new location.
Select the option Run scheduled to enable automatic import based on the selected source.
Due to the fact that issues may only appear once in a project’s tree, any issues that are already in the tree (in some other folder), are ignored, even if they match a filter or are manually selected to be added to a given folder.
Only filters shared with the requirements project, or in the categories “My“, “Favorite“ or “Popular“, may be used when selecting a filter.
Opens the sort issues dialog, where you choose the issue field to sort by, as well as the sort order. Issues can be sorted by issue key, creation date, issue summary, issue type or priority. Select Sort to perform the operation.
This operation is disabled while the tree is still loading. Only issues directly contained in the selected folder are sorted. The sort order of Issues in subfolders as well as any child requirements is not affected.
Opens the add Confluence page dialog, allowing you to search for existing pages in any linked Confluence instance.
Creates a URL for the selected folder or requirement. Opening the URL in a browser displays the project tree with the folder or requirement preselected.
Refreshes the folder's content and fetches any updates from the server.
Show in issue navigator
Opens the Jira issue navigator in a new browser tab or window. All issues contained in the selected folder and its subfolders are displayed by applying a search query using the JQL function requirementsPath, provided by R4J.
Expands the selected folder and all subfolders.
Jira administrators can configure number of levels that can be expanded at a time.
Collapses the selected folder and all subfolders.
Stages one or more folders or requirements for pasting within the same project or to a different project.
Stages one or more folders or requirements for copying within the same project or to a different project.
If a filter is applied to the tree, only issues that satisfy the filter are included in the staged items.
Pastes staged items to the selected folder, as follows:
cut and paste: The items are moved to the new location. When performed within the same projects, the operation simply moves items within the project tree and can also be accomplished using drag and drop. When performed between different projects, the cut items are removed from the source project and moved to the target project. If one or more issues already exist in the target project, the issues are automatically moved the new location.
copy and paste: The Reuse Issues dialog is displayed, where options for copying the items are presented. See https://easesolutions.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/REQ4J/pages/2244804629.
This operation is disabled while the tree is still loading.
Opens the edit folder dialog. Folders are just a special type of Jira issue, made available by R4J, and their fields are edited in the same way as for other types of issues (except that the name of the root folder cannot be changed). R4J enhances the edit dialog with a statistics section showing, for example, the number of issues in a folder.
You can add an image to a folder by attaching it to the folder. To make it visible in the Reading View , add a link to the image in the description. Note that R4J only allows images to be attached to folders, not other types of files.
Opens the delete folder dialog.
Removing folders from the tree removes all its subfolders and requirements recursively. They are not deleted in Jira and can be added again to the tree.
