You can build your organization hierarchy from the top level through business units. Organization structures are most commonly used by organizations that have distinct business units or legal entities that require segmentation for resources or funding. If your organization tracks work, creates roadmaps, or manages budgets by business unit, add your organization structures to Jira Align.
Organization structures are used when setting up portfolios.
To create an organization structure:
- On the menu bar, select Administration, and then click Organization Structures under Setup.
- On the toolbar (top-right of the page), click the Add New button.
- In the Organization Structure box, type the name of the organization structure, and then click Save & Close.
Note: To build the organization hierarchy, add more structures and select the parent organization structure for each of them.
