    Epic Link Tick the option to enable the mapping
    Dir

    The synchronisation direction.

    Import:  The imported task will be placed under the task that is linked to the Epic the imported issue is a part of. If the issue is not in an Epic, the new task will be created on the first level, unless there is another mapping that defines the place of the task in hierarchy.

    Sync (unlinked task): The new issue will be included in the Epic linked to the parent task of the synchronised task. If the task is on the first level, the issue will not be included in an Epic.

    Sync (linked task): If the direction is from JIRA to MS Project, the task will be moved under the task that is associated with its Epic issue in JIRA. If the issue is not a part of an Epic, it will be moved onto the first level, unless there is another mapping that defines the place of the task in hierarchy.

    If the direction is from MS Project to JIRA, the issue will be moved into the Epic linked to the parent task in MS Project. If the task is on the first level in MS Project, the issue will be removed from its Epic.

    Only for these issue types Tick the option and select issue types to apply the mapping only to particular issue types. When data is copied from JIRA to MS Project, the issue type comes from JIRA. When data is copied from MS Project to JIRA, the issue type is the value of the field Issue Type is mapped to using the Issue Type mapping.
