How to sync only workitems from Azure using filter "CreatedBy" in TFS4JIRA?

Deleted user March 17, 2020

Hi Community!

I am trying  using the mapped user jira_services which is the user used for TFS4JIRA synchronizer to sync only wokitem from Azure that are Created By that user but does not work ( already open a ticket with Spartez who is investigating) 




We want to sync this way:

  • Jira Software → Azure
    • create workitem
    • send comments
    • send attachments
    • transition workitems
  • Azure → Jira Software ( filter only workitems created by the synchronizer )
    • send comments
    • send attachments
    • transition issues when workitem change status


Many thanks in advance!

Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

We have a feature called Filters which has the ability to further define the scope of issues or work items to be synchronized. 


Filters are based on Jira Query Language. For more information, please refer to Advanced search with Jira Query Language

Filters are additional parameters added to JQL. In other words, the project and item types that have already been defined during configuration. In the example above, when clicking on See in Jira, you would see the following:

project = 'jiraprojectname' AND (Labels = development)

Project and issue type can only be modified through Profile configuration

“Test query” will test the entire JQL and will return execution results. Testing the filter query is run as a normal query, without any impact to current or future synchronizations. 

Saving filters will only be possible for filters that were successfully executed.

In your case, you want to have only Created By, hence you can filter based on that.
