It is possible to filter the synchronization to have them customized for your needs and requirements.

UI Filtering Option:

  • Click on the filtering icon near the app icon in your integration. This will apply to that side of the integration.

  • Select if the filtering applies to All, New, and Synced items.

  • Note that if the option “New items” is selected, the filtering will apply only to the new items, and the already synced items will continue to sync and update. If the option “Synced items” is selected, only the already synced items will be updated based on that filter.

  • Choose the options and add the value for the filter. It is possible to filter more than one option for each field.

  • Select Apply once you created the filters and Save the integration.

JQL Filtering:

  • Select the app that will receive the filter.

  • Under the field Custom JQL, it is possible to provide a JQL, which will be the filter for your sync and appended to the one generated when searching for issues in Jira (e.g., status in ('In Progress')).

  • Save the integration.

Duplicate Setup and Select Different Projects:

  • Go to Workflows.

  • Click the 3 dots on the right side and select "duplicate."

  • A side panel will appear. Select a new name for the integration (by default, the integration will be called “copy of” if the same projects are established).
