Once configured, the scope of a Timebox (Program Increment or Iteration) will update automatically by synchronizing with the specified field (Timebox synchronized field).
The synchronization is bidirectional which means that:
- scheduling a task card for a specific Timebox will update the "Timebox synchronized field"
- a change of the field's value for a specific issue will be reflected on the Board (an updated issue will be scheduled for a synchronized Timebox)
The following Jira field types are currently supported:
- Select list
- Text field (single line)
The Board can visualize tasks which fit within the Program's scope only.
Please note, that you can update in bulk the following presets for new and existing (but not configured) Timeboxes of a given type by modifying Scope synchronization template:
- synchronization mode
- synchronized field
- default Jira board (in case Sprint was selected as a "synchronized field")
|Timebox synchronization mode|
There are three options:
Timebox synchronized field
(Field to synchronize with)
Timeboxes (Program Increments or Iterations) can identified by the following Jira field types:
A setup of bidirectional synchronization. It determines:
Once "Sprint" field is selected, you need to pick the Jira board to narrow the sprint selection list to a specific Jira board.
"Any Jira board" option is only available on Jira Software server version.
The warning appears when the scope of a given Timebox is not configured yet – a field value of a Timebox synchronization field was not defined - although a synchronization is turned on (Shared or Team specific mode selected).
As a Timebox has a status "Closed" it is not possible to update the configuration.
Save the current scope configuration.
The save operation will succeed only if every configured Timebox has unique configuration (e.g. there cannot be 2 iterations in BigPicture that are synchronized with the same Jira sprint)
