Externalizing existing scripts

    This article shows how you can move your existing Sync Rules scripts into an external scripts library.

    Pre-requisites

    Steps to move your Sync Rules into the external directory

    • Open the DataFilter.groovy file to edit in your development environment

    • Copy-paste the code from the Outgoing sync(data filter) into the DataFilter.groovy file

      Note: Please read the code comments to get more details on where to paste the code in the file.

    • Call the groovy file in the Sync Rules using the code provided in the file comment

      The comment is located on the top of the file, below you can see how it looks. For more details check Groovy imports

      /**
      Replace your "Outgoing sync (data filter)" with this snippet:
      
      DataFilter.execute(
         replica,
         issue,
         nodeHelper,
         commentHelper,
         workLogHelper,
         userHelper,
         connection,
         issueKey
      )
    • Repeat the steps for CreateProcessor.groovy and ChangeProcessor.groovy files.
