The name of the relation is key in the synchronization configuration. It is used to find the matching relation on the destination instance.

The information sent from the left instance using relation 'BlueRed' is being processed by the relation with the name 'BlueRed'.
An error will be raised in case such relation is not found.

Creating a new relation

1Access the relation management form
Admin - Add-on - Exalate - Relations.
2Adding a new relation.
3Provide a name, optional description, and
selecting the appropriate remote instance.


The name must be unique.

4Configure the data filter.

Check the The code editor for details

5Configure the create processor.


6Configure the change processor.


7Set Link type

Controls how does exalate display information about the remote issue


  • Sync Panel Link displays the remote issue (with a clickable link) in the Sync Panel (and only there)
  • Remote issue link displays an issue link (containing remote issue key and summary); creates JIRA issue Web links during the first synchronization.
  • Both Links displays both: the Sync Panel link (which is updated with each subsequent update synchronization), and a "Remote Issue Link"
  • None does not display any link to the remote issue (Exalate internally knows, which is the remote issue)
8Add/Save the relation.

Relation matching is a process which will be improved in future releases of the Jiranode.
