PreviousNext

  1. In order to change the issue links mappings, select  Links tab in the Project settings window.

  2. An explanation of the  Links Mappings tab is provided below.

    Field Description
    Links table Contains link mappings
    JIRA The name of the mapped link
    Dir The synchronisation direction
    Microsoft Project The mapped Microsoft project field description
    Issue Types The issue types the mapping is applied to
    X (cross) Deletes the mapping
    Details pane Shows the details of the selected mapping
    Link type

    Select the JIRA issue link type to be mapped.

    Link

    Tick either the inward or outward links to be mapped.

    Direction Button Press to change the synchronisation direction.
    Predecessors

    Tick the option to map the issue links to the Predecessors field in MS Project.

    Import: Dependencies on the tasks that match the issues linked to the imported issue will be added to the imported task.

    Sync (unlinked task): Links to the issues matching the predecessors of the published task will be added to the new issue.

    Sync (linked task): If the direction is from JIRA to MS Project, dependencies on the tasks that match the issues linked to the synchronised issue will be set for the synchronised task.

    If the direction is from MS Project to JIRA, links to the issues matching the predecessors of the synchronised task will be added to the synchronised issue and any redundant links will be removed.

    SF/SS/FS/FF

    Select the dependency type that will be used for linking to predecessors. The options include Start-to-Finish (SF), Start-to-Start (SS), Finish-to-Start (FS) and Finish-to-Finish (FF)

    Remove other types

    If the direction is from JIRA to MS Project, tick the option to delete all existing predecessors where the dependency type is different from the type selected in the SF/SS/FS/FF field. That is, when this switch is on, the mapping controls all predecessors for a task. If the option is off, predecessors of other types are unaffected by the mapping.

    If a link mapping has the switch on, it must be the only predecessor mapping defined.

    Field

    Tick the option to map the issue links to a custom text field that contains a list of issue keys.

    Import:  The selected field will be populated with the keys of the issues linked to the imported issue.

    Sync (unlinked task): Links to the issues with the keys from the selected text field will be added to the new issue.

    Sync (linked task): If the direction is from JIRA to MS Project, the selected field will be populated with the keys of the issues linked to the synchronised issue.

    If the direction is from MS Project to JIRA, links to the issues with the keys from the selected text field will be added to the synchronised issue and any redundant links will be removed.

    Field (Combo Box) Select the field to map to issue links.
    Parent

    Tick the option to map the issue link to the parent (summary) task.

    Import:  The new task will be added as the last child of the task that match the issue linked to the synchronised issue.

    Sync (unlinked task): A link to the issue matching the parent task will be added to the new issue.

    Sync (linked task): If the direction is from JIRA to MS Project, the synchronised task will be moved under the task that match the issue linked to the synchronised issue.

    If the direction is from MS Project to JIRA, a link to the issue matching the parent task will be added to the synchronised issue and any redundant links will be removed.

    Task Outline Level Defines the level range the mapping is applied to. This is the level of the synchronised task and not the one of its parent. The option is regarded only when data is copied from MS Project to JIRA during synchronisation and ignored during import or when the synchronisation direction is from JIRA to MS Project.
    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.
    Add Adds a new mapping for a link type.
