The WBS Widget is a customizable task list and works in a similar way to the Gantt and Scope modules tasks lists. You can display different fields as columns, change the aggregation and display options. To learn more about customizing the columns, go to Column Views in Gantt.
It shows the currently viewed task and its direct parent, or you can see the whole scope of the Box to which the tasks belongs.
Configuration and Security
- App Administrators can configure the widget, enable it on selected issue types or projects in App administration > Technical configuration > Widgets > WBS Widget (requires Jira Administrator access).
- To use the widget you need the Box Viewer Security Role as a minimum.
Your tasks might be included within the scope of multiple Boxes (and sub-Boxes) and the Box picker will help you find them. Alternatively, this information will be also displayed if you click on the task using the Gantt module.
Use the Box picker to switch between Boxes and show the currently viewed tasks in relation to others in the hierarchy.
Show on Gantt
You can jump directly to the Gantt module and the App will zoom in on (highlight) the currently viewed task.
To use this feature make sure that the Gantt module is enabled in the Box configuration which requires Box Admin Security Role to access.
Show Full Scope
The widget can show the complete scope of the Box and load all the tasks, not only the parent tasks resulting from the tasks structure.
