Operations


What is it ?


An Elements Copy & Sync operation is basically a "Create and Link" action. 

It can be used to create a JIRA Issue or a Confluence page from an issue, create a link from the source issue to the created issue / page and to inject values of the source issue into the target.

Elements Copy & Sync offers the possibility to execute an operation from a button in the Issue view and/or a new option in the More menu. Operations can also be executed during a transition thanks to the Elements Copy & Sync post-functions.
