I want to use the new JIRA 2-way sync edits for Epics, but the actual searching and dropdown just doesn’t work well for my company. We’ve got extra fields in JIRA that help to filter to only epics your team cares about, versus the entire company.
I was previously using a crazy amount of JIRA automation to change epics from Coda. I want to now use “Epic Link,” but I can’t figure out what to place in that column to get the edit to pick up and go to JIRA.
For my example, we are selecting an Epic via selecting a filtered list of IssueType=Epic from the native Coda <> JIRA sync table. The
Epic Link field is formatted like: “EQPD-2451: Keep software up to date”
I’ve tried sending text formatted the same way to the
Epic Link field, but that hasn’t worked, and I’ve tried just sending the
Issue itself (JIRA Native Issue Column), and that doesn’t work, and I’ve also tried just referencing the JIRA table row as well. Also doesn’t work.
tl;dr - I want to formulaically set the
Epic Link column in a JIRA sync table vs using the drop-down. What do I need to put into that column to get it to work?
