How to sync issue links

This article is about how to configure Exalate such that issue links between jira issues on the source get recreated in the target.



For instance assume on the source you have AAA-123  linked with DDD-234 using a 'relates to' link type.

Assume now that the synced issue of AAA-123 becomes XXX-345 on target, and the synced issue of DDD-234  becomes YYY-456.  How can Exalate be setup such that XXX-345 is automatically linked with YYY-456 using the 'relates to' link type?



Issue link synchronisation is an out of the box feature of Exalate.  

First of all, you need to ensure that the issue link information is sent over to the target by adding to the outgoing message processor 


// Add the issue links to the message
replica.issueLinks = issue.issueLinks


On the target side, add to the incoming message processor


// automatically apply the same links to the twin

issue.issueLinks = replica.issueLinks


That's it - Simple as Bonjour.
