Templates




In Templates tab, we can set pre-defined panel content so user can import it automatically in issue panel






Panel configuration

Since Elements Checklist version 1.6.0, multiple panel templates can be configured for a given panel.

To do so, go to Project > Panel configuration > Templates tab.

The new view displays the list of existing templates. You can create a new template from right top button "Create".

A new option "Auto populate" let Elements Checklist populate panel with the first template that matches JQL condition when an Issue is created.

In this version, a new field "Name" is henceforth required for each template.

Another new field "JQL Condition"  give you possibility to define a template display condition using JQL: only issues matching this condition will propose this template. This field is optional.

You can now insert new rows into your panel template with static values. For your information:

  • File attributes cannot be filled
  • Mandatory attributes can be left empty

If you modify the panel structure, template content will be live-updated as well.

Issue panel

Once one or many templates are defined for a specific panel AND match JQL Condition, if the issue panel is empty, user will see a list of matching templates and he can pre-populate panel by clicking on "Use template" button
