Is it possible to pull the values of a ConfiForm back into the entry fields via ID or jiraKEY?

The most recent request I received may not even be possible. They want to be able to use the Jira Key for an issue that was created in a form to pull what was entered into the form at a previous date back into the editable entry fields. They want to then modify the fields as they see fit and submit to have it edit an issue accordingly.

Are you asking about retrieving the data from a Jira issue and setting it back to fields in ConfiForms?

Look at this tutorial -

Almost. They want to retrieve the data from a Jira issue (which was populated via ConfiForm) pull it into the ConfiForms entry fields. Modify as they wish and set it back in Jira.

My extra conundrum with pulling back from Jira is I have multiple fields populating the description. They are separate in the ConfiForm but combine in the Jira issue. If I pull the info from Jira I don't know of a way to separate them back. If I pull the fields from the confiform entry then I could get them separated but then the data is potentially not up to date if someone updated the Jira issue directly.

Here I afraid I cannot help you...

Looks like you need to parse the description back somehow...
