Jira Align has the ability to push Program Increment (PI) and the Parent Feature name data to a custom field in Jira Software from Jira Align Features to Jira Epics.
Whether this custom field is already in place or one is being created for the first time, please be aware of the following best practices:
This is a one-way push from Jira Align to Jira Software — only Jira Align can push Program Increment and Parent Feature data as these fields are not native to Jira Software. Jira Align is the system of record for these fields upon integration.
Within Jira, Navigate to Settings > Issues > Custom Fields > Click "Add Custom Field". In the top right of the application Select Advanced Field Types > Select "Text Field (read only) > Create a custom field for Parent Feature Name and repeat for Program Increment.
Add these fields to the create, edit, and view screens within your integrated Jira Projects.
Jira Align Configurations
To connect Parent Feature Name and Program Increment data to your Jira Software custom fields, log into Jira Align and navigate to Administration > Connectors > Jira Settings > Jira Setup > Custom Fields. Next, scroll down to the Parent Feature Name and Program Increment fields and enter your custom field IDs in the following format: customfield_100xx, where "100xx" is the ID located in Jira Software.
Note - after adding these fields you will need to update the work items in Jira Align to force the sync on legacy work items.
