Jira Issues Calendar

Jira issues contain a significant amount of date-related information, including Creation, Resolution, Due dates, and Custom date fields.

Linking Jira issues to Environments through Environment Custom Fields enables direct integration with Golive Timelines, enhancing management and visibility. This makes them ideal candidates as Events on Golive Timelines. Additionally, Jira issues are well-suited for building advanced Environment Booking and Reservation or Change Approval workflows,.

To maximize the utility of Issue Calendars, it's essential to familiarize yourself with their basic concepts and features. If you're new to Calendars, refer to the Timeline Core Concepts article.


Set up an Issue Calendar

On the Events Source tab, begin by selecting the issues you want to display on the Timeline. You can switch between Basic and Advanced modes using the toggle in the top-right corner:

Basic Mode

  1. Choose a Jira Project and the Issue Type in the first section.

  2. Map the Start date, End date, and Environment to your Issue Type Fields in the second section.

Advanced Mode

  1. Select a Jira Project, an existing Jira Filter, or craft your own Jira Query Language (JQL) query to specify the issues for the Timeline.

  2. Specify the issue fields corresponding to the start of the event, the end of the event, and the linked Environment. This ensures that Events are accurately displayed on the Timeline.

  3. Define Default Values for the Project and the Issue Type. These values will be automatically populated when creating issues from the Timeline via drag-and-drop functionality.
