4. Set up a Connection
Synchronization between two instances requires a configured Connection.
One side needs to initiate the connection and send an invitation to the partner (the Destination instance).
The other side needs to finish the configuration from their side.
You can synchronize with any of the supported issue tracking platforms. For example, you can sync between Salesforce and Jira Cloud or Jira Server, even if your Jira Server instance is behind a firewall in a private network. For more details check typical use cases.
To start synchronization with your partner read Set up a connection in Exalate for Salesforce.
If you have an Invitation code check out Accept an Invitation.
5. Synchronize an entity
To start the synchronization for Salesforce you need to configure a trigger, use Sync Status Panel, or start the sync from Jira/remote side.
The Early Access Program provides an evaluation license for 30 days. The license is set automatically when verifying your Exalate for Salesforce instance. You will get the instance link together with the installation instructions.
