How to synchronize the start and end dates of WBS Gantt and Jira issues


Is there a way to apply the start date and finish date set in the Gantt chart as the start date and due date of the Jira issue?

I would like to be able to see in Jira's issue list and timeline with a schedule synchronized with the Gantt chart.

Good luck.

Yes, you can use Jira field instead of app's own data. Here are the steps.

Use Jira data instead of app’s own data.

  1. Go to Jira Settings > Apps > WBS GANTT-CHART > Issue > Click “Edit” at the upper right corner.
  2. Fields > Choose “Use Jira field”
  3. Select Jira field for all fields. If you don’t have any fields, then you can create them by choosing (Create new custom field).
  4. Click “Update” The fields that will be created are below.

If you have already entered data in WBS Gantt-Chart’s own fields, you can convert the data to Jira data. For more details, please read the following document.'s-own-data-to-Jira-issue-link%2Ffield.3671228425.html



This is more of an answer than I expected. Thanks for the guide.

It's been a big help for me!


Good Luck.
