Project settings

  1. In order to change the Ceptah Bridge project settings, select JIRA > Project Settings in the Microsoft Project menu.

  2. The project settings window will be displayed.
  3. Enter the mappings that reflect your synchronization policy on the first six tabs – Basic, Status, Secondary, Time TrackingCustom Fields and Options . Each mapping between an issue field and task field is represented by a row in a table on the form. The row can contain the following elements (but not necessarily all of them):
    • The name of the JIRA field being mapped.
    • A check box to enable or disable the mapping.
    • A button to specify the direction of synchronization or just a sign of direction if the direction cannot be changed. In the former case, pressing the button changes the direction.
    • A field for a default value that should be used to populate the issue attribute being mapped when creating new issues or when synchronizing an existing issue and the respective value cannot be retrieved for the linked task.
    • A set of elements (or just a field) to specify the task field to map the issue field to. Where applicable, you can select the MS Project field names from a drop-down list or type them in. The list includes the most reasonable options for the particular mapping. Note that some fields may not work for the mapping due to the type incompatibility or the nature of the field in Microsoft Project.
    You can find a detailed description of the mappings and how they affect synchronization in one of the sub-chapters of this chapter.
  4. If you want to synchronize the project with a JIRA server different from the one specified in the general connection settings, switch to the last tab JIRA Connection .

The settings can be saved to or load from a file. This can be used to transfer settings between different projects, as well as for preparing a settings file for the command-line synchronization tool.

Click the Load File button in the toolbar to load settings from an XML file saved earlier.

Click the Save File button in the toolbar to save the settings into an XML file. The file can be loaded later into another project or used with the command-line utility. You will be prompted to select a location and a name for the file to save the settings.

JIRA lookup lists that were used to populate drop-down boxes and other fields can be reloaded using the Reload JIRA Lookups button.
