Hi Team,

We are using Exalate connect option to sync existing Jira issue with existing github issues/PR's.
When we sync with Github we have below script placed in Jira incoming script.

issue.customFields."GITHUB ID".value = replica.key
issue.customFields."GitHub Status".value = replica.status.name
issue.customFields."Github link".value = remoteReplica.payload.issueUrl

These above field values not syncing immediately after the first sync.

Jira incoming script

if(firstSync){
  syncHelper.syncBackAfterProcessing()

issue.projectKey   = "SWDEV" 
   // Set type name from source issue, if not found set a default
//issue.typeName     = nodeHelper.getIssueType(replica.type?.name, issue.projectKey)?.name ?: "Defect"
//}
//issue.summary      = replica.summary
//issue.description  = replica.description
issue.customFields."GITHUB ID".value = replica.key
issue.customFields."GitHub Status".value = replica.status.name
issue.customFields."Github link".value = remoteReplica.payload.issueUrl

      Hi Varun,


      Thanks for reaching us! 


      Initially it should be possible to sync Github fields to Jira customfields as long as the value of both fields match.


      In order to understand what is failing in your current configuration please confirm the following:


      1. What is the value type of the customfields created in Jira, do they match the type of value being passed by the fields from Github?
      2. I see you are using syncHelper.syncBackAfterProcessing() according to this documentation the issue.key customfield script should be set on the incoming script of the opposite side. Have you tried this implementation?


      Additionally, could you also share the scripts from the outgoing sync? 


      Thanks,

        Hi Ezequiel Consorti ,

        Thanks for your response.

        Here are the details steps :


        • Trying sync between Jira and Github with Connect option in Jira
        • After exalating with github.
        • We are expecting two fields to be updated immediatly in Jira with github status and github url for that we are using the below script
        issue.customFields."GITHUB ID".value = replica.key
        issue.customFields."GitHub Status".value = replica.status.name
        issue.customFields."Github link".value = remoteReplica.payload.issueUrl
        • But the fields were not syncing immediately in Jira after first sync.
        • If we update or comment in Github these fields were updating with the details.
        • We are not expecting this,we are expecting the details to be synced in the first sync itself.


        Can we achieve this ?


        Thank you,
        Varun

        Hi varun,


        I understand from looking at your scripts that the syncs are happening from Github to Jira.


        I see that in your Jira scripts you have 

        if(firstSync){
          syncHelper.syncBackAfterProcessing()
        } 

        This line of code helps to send back certain information to the source side once the issue is created on the destination side.

        If what you wish to do is to set customfields from Github to Jira on the first sync, you would need to add the script for those customfields inside the if(firstSync){}.


        Additionally I see you are using the syncHelper but I do not see any customfield being shared back to github, because of this I believe that there is no need for the syncHelper in the Jira incoming scripts. More info on how this helper works.


        Thanks,
        Ezequiel
