We are planning to implement a JIRA Cloud instance and will need to sync issues between our instance and vendor instances (cloud and/or server -based).
The add-ons I've located for conditional syncing, such as IssueSync and Cross for JIRA, all seem to be server based.
So, I'm wondering if:
a) are there any cloud based options?
b) are there any stand-alone options?
c) or do we have to stand up a JIRA Server instance just for the sync plugin?
Another add-on you might want to take a look at is Backbone Issue Sync for JIRA.
a) you can download it for server, data center and cloud - it provides integrations in all directions.
b/c) Backbone is installed on each instance as an add-on
I imagine by pulling the full history, you want to have the same history on the target issue as in the source issue, right?
What Backbone does, it applies all changes on the target issue. As soon as the source issue is changed, the target issue will be changed and therefore a similar history in the target issue will be produced - however the change dates/times will be different.
However, the initial history (before the sync) will not be reproduced on the other side.
I assume, you already know that. If you want to discuss your use case with us further, please let us know at email@example.com and we arrange a meeting.
Exalate requires to have it installed on both sides. The reason is that you want to remain autonomous between the two systems.
Whenever your customer is doing a configuration change, you don't want to be affected or the way around.
There are solutions to do the synchronisation from one side, but that is an approach which will get problematic whenever you scale the number of connections. Imagine that you need to negotiate with all your partners that you plan to change your workflow.
With an autonomous solution like Exalate, configuration changes are contained on one side as long as the information sent to the other partners is not changed.
I have multiple projects that use variations of the same base workflow. The variations depend on the requirements of the project or issue type. The variations mostly come in the form of new statuses ...
