How Jira Align Process Step to Jira Status mapping works with Jira Align State Field

Have a few questions

  1. If we enable the Jira Align process step to Jira status mapping and have the value stream set up to map to state, will updates made to the process step through integration update the Jira Align state based on the value stream mapping?  
  2. Assume Process step to Jira status mapping should be 1-1 in both directions?
  3. When we have process step mapping enabled, is the state field in Jira Align on the work item read-only so that users are forced to select the process step?

@Lisa Allen  For your questions:

1) Configuration Path 5, in the article mentioned by Tom, handles making sure that within Jira Align the Process Step and State remain aligned with each other. (The path  is bidirectional so a change of either State or Process Step can change the other value.)

2) Process Step to Jira Status is handled by Path 4 and itself is only in that direction, but Path 3 handles Jira Status to Process step (so in effect it is bidirectional as long as both paths are configured). 1-1 settings are recommended, but we can handle less statuses in Jira than Process Steps in Jira Align and vice versa

3) The Jira Align State is not read-only when Process Steps are enabled (which kind of relates to the answer to Q1)

Yes, I did start there and had the posted questions.
