Elements Connect

This version is not compliant with Elements Connect 5.13.x and lower. Please refer to compatibility matrix here


When set as source field in a Field to field mapping, Elements Connect fields are evaluated to their display value.
If you want to copy the key of a Elements Connect field, you can use the advanced field mapping with this syntax: $exocetResolver.getValue($issue, "customfield_XXXXX")

You can see issue and current velocity variable page to have more explanation on the exocetResolver function.
