Hi all,

we have successfully created a connection between JIRA Server and ADO. Everything went well so far.

However we discovered an issue that the Repro Steps in ADO will be only snyced from the JIRA, if the comment field has a value. If the comment has no value, no Repro Steps will be synced. 

Here is the incoming sync code:

workItem.summary = replica.summary
workItem.customKeys."Repro Steps" = replica.description
workItem.description = replica.description
workItem.priority = replica.priority
workItem.labels = replica.labels
workItem.attachments = attachmentHelper.mergeAttachments(workItem, replica)
workItem.comments = commentHelper.mergeComments(workItem, replica)


Has anyone an idea why this happens that way?

Thank you very much in advance.

Have a great day

Robert

      The incoming sync will only be processed if there is an incoming message.
      A message will be sent only if there is a change on the jira.
      Can you check if a message is processed whenever changing/adding something else than a comment.

        Yes, there is a incoming message. All fields are synchronised, except Repro Steps. 

        Repro steps will only be synced if we drop at least one character at the comments field

        Hi Robert Kirsten

        The case is puzzling (especially dropping at least one character at the comment field)
        Can you provide in more detail a step by step approach?

      3. Robert Kirsten

        Hi there, sure thing:

        1. First step, we create a bug on the JIRA side:
        2. This is the state how the bug is sync to ADO. As you can see, there is no value in the field "Repro Steps"
        3. By changing the title or the adding a comment on the JIRA side, the fields will be synced (by no obviously reason). No special rules added in the incoming sync section 


        Are these informations helpful? We can provide further informations. For now, we have no clue where to check further settings. Also checked the error logs, there is no error so far shown.

        Can you provide the full incoming sync processor?

        Hi Francis Martens (iDalko)

        yes, here you are:

        if(firstSync){
        // Set type name from source entity, if not found set a default
        workItem.typeName = nodeHelper.getIssueType(replica.type?.name)?.name ?: "Task";
        }
        workItem.summary = replica.summary
        workItem.customKeys."Repro Steps" = replica.description
        workItem.description = replica.description
        workItem.priority = replica.priority
        workItem.labels = replica.labels
        workItem.attachments = attachmentHelper.mergeAttachments(workItem, replica)
        workItem.comments = commentHelper.mergeComments(workItem, replica)
        workItem.areaPath = "LALA\\BLABLA"
        workItem.iterationPath = "LALA"

        Following works

        workItem."Microsoft.VSTS.TCM.ReproSteps" = "Hello there"



        What I did.




        Would this work for you?
