Hi @Yogesh K

The current functionality within Jira Align to accomplish this can be found here:

Set up Jira link actions

You can synchronize issue links from Jira and convert them into dependencies in Jira Align.

To set up Jira link actions:

  1. Under Set up Jira Link Actions, click Add New.
  2. Type the link ID (you can get it by taking an example from Jira and exporting it to XML; look for issuelinktype id).
  3. Type the link name (for example, Depends On; look in Jira).
  4. From the Action drop-down menu, select the Story Predecessor action type.
  5. Click Update Link.

After the setup, the issue links from Jira appear on the story’s page in Jira Align under Story Links on the right. You can view the links from the story and to this story.

Here, you can convert the Jira issue links to Jira Align dependencies. Select the check boxes next to the stories you want to convert, and then click Mass create dependencies. The stories should belong to a feature to create a dependency.

You can also generate a report of all story links, which are not yet converted to dependencies, under Program > Dependencies > More Actions > Story Link Report.



I will note that the majority of our customers manage dependencies at the Feature level and up directly within the Jira Align dependency module.


Is there a process to automate the syncing? is the sync a way one communications from Jira to Align or is bi-directional?

Thanks Tim for your response! Will try this out and get back for any further queries/challenges around this. 


Thank You,
