The connect facility provided by Exalate allows linking issues from two existing projects so that these are under sync and any future changes are automatically synchronized.
This connect facility requires:
- an existing Connection
- a mapping file with local and remote keys
Steps to bring the issues of 2 projects under sync are:
|1||Set up a Connection.||Check the getting started guide.|
|2||Creat a csv file mapping local issues with remote issues.|
This CSV file is a comma-separated list of local keys with their corresponding remote key
The file content should look like:
|3||Access the Bulk Connect operation|
Admin - Addon - Exalate - Bulk Connect
|4||Select Connection, upload the csv file and submit|
The add-on will load the file and process line by line, ensuring that the local issue is properly related to the remote issue.
An error message will be returned when:
- No connection is selected or no file has been provided
- The format in the file is not correct (ie. missing local or remote key, more fields ...)
- A local key cannot be found or is entered twice in the file
Synchronization issues are handled through the Error handling screens.
