A Program Box can sync with Jira automatically but in order to do so, the scope of data needs to be defined first.
This can be done using in several ways, by selecting from the lists of the previously created Agile Boards, JQL filters or Projects:
|Board||Pick from the list of previously created Jira Boards (requires Jira Software), the Program will pull in all the issues which fit the agile's board "Saved Filter" query,|
|Filter||Pick from the list of previously saved JQL filters,|
|Project||Pick from a list of created projects.|
|Task types||Add issue versions, components, sprints, backlog or projects as tasks to the scope.|
|Narrow down||Add an extra filter (type using JQL).|
When using the JQL filters to define the scope, make sure that the filter is shared with BigPicture and BigGantt users or they might not see the Quick filter results. Applies to both Board and Filter boxes as Boards use filters to display issues.
There is an 'OR' gate between Board, Filter and Project scope elements, while 'AND' gate with the Extra filtering condition element which narrows down the scope.
