Jira Align work items can be updated through the Import functionality accessed through the grid views. Here are steps to edit or update work items:
If you are wondering why you need to copy the data in the export file to the import file, that is because they files are different formats (export is a .xls and import is .xml) and also the columns in the files are not exactly the same.
@sachin gangam If you want to bulk update the PI for Epics and Capabilities, you could use the Mass Move functionality. You do have to be careful with this as Epics and Capabilities can be assigned to more than one Program which can be in different PIs and a Mass Move can overwrite that. As for developing more bulk update functionality, I don't have visibility into that. You can submit it as a product enhancement idea on the Jira Align ideation portal. Here is an Atlassian Community article about the ideation process. Your Jira Align Solution Architect or Technical Account Manager can help you with getting access to the ideation portal.
hello @Sam Tsubota we were trying to update additional programs on Epics using the import functionality but we were not successful. Is there anything that we are missing? It is only importing one additional program while we have 2-3 additional programs. We also noticed that the Future State & Desired Outcome, Current Situation, Recommendation & Desired Solution and Notes field values are lost with import.
I think I found the issue here. We can update the additional programs only when the additional programs field is empty. For example, let's say epic1 has a primary program and 2 additional programs, I cannot update the additional programs field. I have to clear the additional programs field first and then update the additional programs.
