Q: Can I change the field mappings after they have been set?
A: Once a mapping has been configured and the synchronization has run there are some considerations when modifying the setting. There are three scenarios where field mappings could be modified. Changing any mappings will trigger a complete re-synchronization to ensure changes are reflected. Remove or clear a mapping: If you later alter a mapping from any field in Jama Software to point to a different field in Rally the next synchronization will update based on the new settings. Modify a direction of a mapping: The new settings will be used for the next synchronization. Because the fields had been mapped before, they should be synchronized. If a change happens, the synchronization engine will synch them based on the new settings. Modify which fields a mapping points to: This is the most drastic change as it is mostly likely to result in a situation where the fields don’t match. The synchronization engine during its next run will now synchronize the fields based on its current configuration ignoring the previous configuration. When finished, all fields will be synchronized based on the new configuration.
