Scription between boards to automate updates.

Hi There community,

I currently have a Product and Dev boards, with some common fields. Currently I have to clone tasks between boards and also there is no linking between common fields so updates are very manual.


Any suggesting as to how I can address the common fields issue please.

You have to use some plugins. Either

  • Automation for Jira
  • Or Exocet
  • Or Script runner : Use a custom listener with script custom fields in order to sync between the fields
  • Or Exalate 
  • Or Power Scripts for Jira
  • ...

For information, Exocet is now called Elements Copy & Sync

Right (I'm not yet accustomed with the new name though :))

@Andy Leatherland Hey, Andy! Sounds like this is a Jira question, so I'll move it to that collection in order for you to get the answers you need. 😄

Hi @Andy Leatherland ,

As @M Amine said, opting for a synchronization solution could be a viable solution.

We're the developers of Exalate Mohammed mentioned. It's a synchronization solution that will allow you to keep your dev and product boards in sync at all times.

You'll also be able to set up rules so you could choose what to sync and with whom. And you'll be able to set up triggers that determine when a synchronization happens automatically.

Furthermore, if you'll be working with other environments in the future, like another Jira SD or even other trackers like ServiceNow, Zendesk or Github,... You'll be able to add them to you synchronization. But I'm guessing that would be too much for now.

Anyway, I'd love to help you out and show everything through a demo. You can book a demo here.

Also, let me know if you have any other questions.
