Import specific issue links


#1

I have followed the steps to import all issue links from HERE but what I really am looking for is to be able to report on a couple of specific link types: blocks, is blocked by, is preceeded by. What do I need to change in my import to just see those link types, see the issuekeys of the linked issue(s) AND also be able to split the link types out for reporting purposes?

All of the documentation I’ve seen talks about custom fields, but ‘Links’ is a standard field and I that is throwing me off.

Thanks in advance!

Hi,

The configuration of the issue link import in eazyBI provides the flexibility to import also by the specific link types. Please, check the documentation here:
https://docs.eazybi.com/eazybijira/data-import/advanced-data-import-options/import-issue-links

For instance, I used the following configuration options to collect blocks/blocked by links into eazyBI:

[jira.customfield_blocks_link]
name = "Blocks"
outward_link = "blocks"
multiple_values = true
dimension = true

[jira.customfield_is_blocked_link]
name = "Is Blocked"
inward_link = "is blocked by"
multiple_values = true
dimension = true

Kindly,
Janis, eazyBI support
