 Issue Links ‑ Project specific settings Export knowledge base Export     SubscribeSubscribe      Show article info

In this page you can create different sets of project specific active issue link behaviours.

 

The default settings for active issue links often works fine enough.

But sometimes you need to have more control over the fields that are copied over in an active link, on a project basis.

 

You may want a specific issue field to be copied over between just two projects, not all projects.

Or, you want to control which statuses are copied over when the status field, or even map specific statuses in one project to other statuses in another project. 

 

Note: The settings are only working in one direction! If you want two-way specific link settings between project A and project B, you have to create two sets of link settings: A -> B and B -> A. The copy setting action is very useful for this - just copy, and then reverse the From/To projects..

  • From project  - This is the project in which the first issue in the active link is updated, thus triggering the active link to copy over values to the linked issue.
  • To project - This is the project where the recipient issue is.
  • Issue fields - this is the number of issue fields that are updated in this specific link setting. Hover the mouse over the number to see a listing of which fields are specified in this setting.
  • Actions - this column has a number of action that can be performed for each setting.
    • Edit - This opens the Edit setting dialog, where you can specify how this specific setting should work.
    • Copy - This copies the Link setting and opens the Edit dialog for the copy.
    • Delete - This deletes the specific Link setting.

 

 

The Edit or New setting dialog looks like this:

  • From project  - This is the project in which the first issue in the active link is updated, thus triggering the active link to copy over values to the linked issue.
  • To project - This is the project where the recipient issue is.
  • Copy comments? - Check this to copy new issue comments to the recipient issue over the active link
  • Issue fields - this is a checkbox dropdown where you can check multiple issue fields to update over the active link. Some issue fields have optional, additional settings, like Status.
  • Status mappings - This section is shown if the link setting updates status over the link. All issue statuses used in the "From project" are listed, with a mapping in the other project (the dropdown combo to the right). By default they are mapped to the same status, but you can choose any status existing in the "To project" in the dropdown. Statuses that are mapped (and copied over to the other issue) are shown in black. Umapped statuses are shown in grey, and they are not copied over to the other issue.
