Copy to Jira

Copy to Jira allows you to write the values from Structure fields to Jira issue fields - making that data available to teammates who don’t use Structure, or even other apps.

Currently, Copy to Jira works with the following fields:

Run Copy to Jira

To copy data from a formula or Structure column to a Jira field:

  1. Add the formula or column to the structure.

  1. Select Start copying. Note: This action will overwrite any existing data in the Jira field. You will be asked to confirm the operation before proceeding.

The data from your Structure column will now be written to the Jira field. If the data does not copy, make sure you have permission to edit the Jira field, and that the Jira Field has been added to the appropriate issue screen.

If you’re copying a lot of data, this process may take some time. You can continue working in Structure/Jira by selecting Close and continue in background mode. The status of the copy will be available in the Structure footer.

Each Copy to Jira run only occurs once. If something changes with your original Structure data, you will need to run Copy to Jira again to update the destination Jira field.

Reviewing a Copy to Jira Run

Once Copy to Jira has been run, to review the operation:

  1. Select the original column header and choose History of copying…

  2. On the Copy to Jira History page, locate the run and check the Status to the right of the table.

  3. If the run was completed with errors, select the run’s Type for more details.
