Parent Child Story Export

Jump to Best Answer
  • 1.  Parent Child Story Export

    Posted 12-19-2019 07:36 AM
    We have setup stories in a way where a parent represents the overall project and child stories related to the project for support teams can be found under the parent. While we understand now there is a more effective way to leverage feature as the project and not use the parent structure, is there a way to export stories that will show the parent on the top row with children under that? I know we can add the parent column but I'm looking for a way to export for our users while evaluate our options.

    Thank you.

    Hi Jim,

    It would be easier if you could get your users to login to Rally and use the UserStory page as it does want you probably want (minus the export). I am not aware of any bit in the standard UI that will give you a hierarchical export (i.e. to CSV) in the way that I think you mean.

    The next best thing I can offer is a custom app. However, the one I have in mind is expecting there to be Portfolio Items involved. It would work if you could create a Feature and connect the top level UserStory to it and then it would be able to print you out a CSV file that would give you something like this:


    The app is available here: https://github.com/nikantonelli/Radial-Density
    If you take the code out of the deploy/App-uncompressed.html file and place it into a Custom HTML app on a page, it should get you there. How to set up custom apps is described in the help pages.
