The velocity language can be used to set an advanced field mapping. It allows the user to build a deeper and more custom configuration of an Elements copy & sync operation.

This page gives the whole list of velocity variables that can be used.

Raw values

SyntaxDescription
$exocetResolver.getValue($issue, "customfield_XXXXX")


OR


$exocetResolver.getValue($issue, "customfield_name")

Retrieves a string representation of the custom field's content.

XXXXX is the id of the custom field

Notes:

If the custom field value is an issue (ie: Epic link), the Elements Copy & Sync resolver will return the issue.

If the custom field has not value or does not exist, the resolver will return an empty string

If the custom field is an Elements Connect field, the resolver will return the JSON (or XML for Elements Connect v5) stored in database. Use this syntax for Elements Connect field to Elements Connect field mapping.
