We have Jira (Cloud) and Jira Align. I'm a Site Admin in Jira and Super Admin in Align.
We would like defects to be associated to a feature in Align. Example:
The defect issue type is correct in Align and is part of the issue type scheme used by the project team in Jira.
Under Platform Settings in Align, at the team level, Enable Defect Allocation is set to "no". If we change this to Yes, will the defects associate with the feature?
@Rebecca Hylek Changing defect allocation to yes will NOT make it show under the feature. In order to get it to roll it up to the feature, you would need to make it a custom issue type so it will come over in Jira Align as a story with type = defect. (It will still be a defect in Jira). This will allow the story to roll-up to the feature, show on the program board, be included in velocity, etc. This will mean it won't be in a separate backlog and you won't be using the defect reporting in Jira Align. Also, in the team room, they will show as stories and not defects. You would just continue to use the defect reporting you have in Jira. If you want to change it to a custom issue type, follow the second scenario listed in this document; https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Jira-Align-discussions/Jira-and-Jira-Align-Integration-Defect-or-Story-of-Type-Defect/td-p/1263844.
You will need to add a couple of extra things to do this since you have already implemented it the other way:
