1

Jira Field

This is the field in Jira that you want to map the Salesforce object field to (e.g.: Subject, Description, etc.).

2

Remote Field

This is the field in the Salesforce object you want to map to. The available field values are dynamically pulled from the Salesforce object and listed for you.

3

Direction

This is to specify when the mapping will be used, this can be one of 3 options:

  • Jira to <Your Connection Name Object> Only: This means the field mapping will only be used when Jira is sending updates to the remote system (either when creating a new remote object based on a Jira issue or when updating the remote object based on the updates fields in the Jira issue).
     
  • <Your Connection Name Object> to Jira Only: This means the field mapping will only be used when Jira is receiving updates from the remote system (either when creating a new Jira issue from a remote object or when updating the Jira issue based on the updates in the remote object)
     
  • Bi-Directional: This means the field mapping will be used in all situations when a mapping is required.
