Step 3 - Configure the "Bugs" Data Panel


Now we need to set-up the Data Panel that will list the bugs that need to be fixed before your problem can be solved, as well as activate the ability to link issues within it. 
Once again, this can all be done with the Elements Copy & Sync administration pages by adding a second Data Panel.

Display tab


First, set-up the options in the "Display" tab .



Configure Data Panel Display tab



3 - Set the name for your second Data Panel.

4 - Make sure "Display in issue" is set to "Yes".

5 - Configure the JQL display condition : we want the Data Panel to appear only in the "Problem" issues of our project "TellurianSupport".

Content tab


Next we must set-up the options in the "Content" tab :



Configure Data Panel Content tab



6 - In the "Linked issues filter", use a JQL query to filter which issues you want your users to be able to link.
In this second Data Panel, we only want the JSD agents to link bugs from our Jira Software project ("AirCleaner").

7 - In the "Link type" field, enter the type of link(s) you want to allow.
Here we only want to be able to link the bugs which are blocking our current issue, so we selected the "is blocked by" type.

8 - In the "Columns" section, add the fields that will be displayed on the Data Panel.

Actions tab


Finally, we need to configure the "Actions" tab : 



Configure Data Panel Actions tab



9 - Set the "Link issue" action to "Yes", to allow issue linking through the Data Panel.

10 - Activate the "Bypass user permission" option to allow all users to link issues through the Data Panel, even if they do not have the "Link Issues" permission on the project.

11 - Hit the "Save" button, you're done!


Result


This is the end of our tutorial.
Here is how your two Data Panels will appear in the "Problem" issues of your JSD project:
