In the Source configuration tab, you can find the settings that let you define on which Jira issues your recipe will be available.

Source issues

Only issues which satisfy the criteria in this section can be copied by your recipe.
In other words, if an issue does not satisfy all these criterias, the recipe will not be available in the issue view : it will not be displayed, and you won't be able to use it to create a copy.

Project

Use this setting to restrict the projects from which the recipe can copy issues. 
If you select one or more projects, the recipe can only copy issues belonging to one of these projects. If you leave the field empty, the recipe can copy issues from all projects on your Jira instance.

Issue type

Use this setting to restrict the types of issues that the recipe can copy.
If you select one or more issue types, the recipe can only copy issues from one of these types. If you leave the field empty, the recipe can copy issues from all types.

Status

Use this setting to restrict the current status of the issues that your recipe can copy.
If you select one or more statuses, the recipe can only copy issues currently in one of these statuses. If you leave the field empty, the recipe can copy issues in all statuses.

Additional filter

Use this field to write a JQL filter. The recipe can only copy issues which satisfy the filter, in addition to all the other criteria defined in this section. 

Configuration tester

The configuration tester can be used to check the filters set up in the "Source issues" section.

Clicking on the Run test button will trigger a Jira search which returns the exact list of issues where the recipe will be available. With this tool, you can quickly check if the set up in this tab has been properly done.
