Audit logs

What are audit logs?

Elements Copy & Sync lets you automate many tasks linked to issue creation on your Jira Cloud instance, from presetting values in fields to creating issues during workflow post-functions.

In order to offer Jira admins a better view of these automated tasks, the "Audit logs" page of the Copy & Sync administration lists all the issue creations attempted by the add-on during the last 30 days.

Available information

Each row in the audit logs table provides information on an issue creation attempt by Copy & Sync. For each attempt, here is what can be found: 

DateThe date and time of the issue creation attempt.

The result of the issue creation attempt : 

INFO means the issue was successfully created

ERROR means an error occurred that prevented the issue creation

RecipeThe name of the recipe that was used during the issue creation.

The way the recipe was triggered : 

MANUAL means the recipe was triggered manually

POST-FUNCTION means the recipe was triggered during a workflow post-function

CLONE & MOVE means the recipe was triggered with a Clone & Move recipe

WORKFLOW means the recipe was triggered when the source issue status was updated, and that a workfow synchronization was launched

LINK means that a synchronization was established between two issues based on a Synchronization recipe

UNLINK means that a synchronization was removed

BULK COPY means the recipe was triggered during a Bulk copy

REST API means the recipe was triggered by a call to the REST API

SourceThe key of the issue from which the recipe was triggered.

Either a confirmation message in case of success, or an error message indicating the reason for the error during the post-function. There are two kinds of errors : problems in the recipe configuration, or Jira configuration errors (which are marked with a JIRA RESPONSE tag).

Error messages

The possible configuration errors returned during a workflow post-function are:
