How can a limited set of issue labels be synced between two JIRA's

Today we got this challenge


  • two JIRA's (on premise)
  • Issues are being synced between the two JIRA's using exalate
  • Only labels which start with 'pub_' should be shared, all the rest kept internal

It is pretty straightforward to specify what information can be sent over using exalate.  It has the concept of a data filter where you can detail out what labels can be sent.

This data filter is actually a groovy script which is used to setup the message that will be sent over to 'the other side'  This groovy script can have some content like



// a label contains one field 'label'
replica.labels = issue.labels.collect { it.label.findAll("pub_") }
