Edit Custom Field Contexts

With the latest version of Configuration Manager, you can change the default deployment options for custom field contexts. Full documentation


When a modification in a custom field’s contexts (context added or existing context changed) is detected during configuration snapshot deployment, you can change the default matching between source and target contexts using a new EDIT FIELD CONTEXTS button.


Configuration Manager offers you to choose between the following context editing options:

  • merge source context with different target context

  • deploy context as new on target

  • merge source context with its matching target context


App Integrations

Apps in the Jira ecosystem can integrate with Configuration Manager. The integrations allow you to move and migrate app configurations between Jira instances automatically. Full documentation

Monitor app integrations

If you have apps which integrate with Configuration Manager, you can view their integration types and the state of each integration on the App Integrations page.

Migrate global data of apps

As part of the App Integrations functionality, you can export and import the global data of the apps on your Jira which have integration with Configuration Manager. During a configuration snapshot creation, you can choose to export the global data of selected apps. Full documentation
