Work item hierarchy

In this example we start from a list of work items and group them by parent two times.

Open in playground


Given the following template

{{!--  we have a list of PBIs here, group them by parent  --}}

{{#group 'parent' orderBy="title"}}

{{!--  now we have a variable called 'groups' containing the groups
of PBIs. As we group by parent these are basically our features  --}}

{{!-- we group those groups again by parent to get to the epic level  --}}

{{#group groups 'parent' orderBy="title"}}

{{!-- now 'groups' contains our Epics. We can iterate over those
with the standard handlebars #each helper  --}}

{{#each groups}}

{{!-- as we grouped by parent each group is a work item so we
can use the fields and other work item helpers as usual  --}}

{{!-- some features might not have a parent epic so we check if
work item fields actually exist  --}}
{{#if fields}}
## Epic: {{ field 'Title' }}
## No Epic assigned

{{!-- each group contains the list of original work items. These
are accessible via the #workItems helper. Here we are in the scope
of an epic so #workItems will list the features of that Epic  --}}

{{#if fields}}
### Feature: {{ field 'Title' }}
### No Feature assigned

{{!-- the same as above we just go one level down and list the stories of
each feature  --}}

  - {{ field 'Title' }}

Given these work items were added

Other work items

And these work items also exist in the system but are not in your Bravo Notes work item list.

Id Title WorkItemType Parent

30 🍐Feature 1a Feature 1🍎
40 🥭Feature 1b Feature 1🍎
50 🍒Feature 2a Feature 2🍍
