Story Hierarchy

Print this topicEmail this topic

The Story Hierarchy app makes it easy for you to visualize and manage the relationships between parent and child user stories. With this app, you can:

  • View story hierarchies and associated tasks
  • Filter the top level of the hierarchy by workspace and project
  • Re-parent stories and tasks with drag-and-drop
  • Click the FormattedID to see the details of a story or task
  • Edit, copy, or delete work items directly from the app
Story Hierarchy

Advanced features

Rally Portfolio Manager users can see work that is not associated with a portfolio item—indicating work that may not be in alignment with the portfolio.

You can add multiple copies of the app to a custom page and re-parent between the apps. This is useful for viewing and modifying hierarchies that exist in different projects. This feature also works when the Portfolio Hierarchy app is installed. Drag a user story or hierarchy of user stories into a portfolio item in the app.

Re-parent with multiple apps

Note: Project settings apply only to the top level of the hierarchy. You cannot re-parent across workspaces.
