How to break synch in bulk

    Hi,
    Our team reused lots of items in project with synchronization but they realized that it was not correct. How is possible to break synchronization in bulk.

    Thank you for any idea

    Vlada,
    It looks like all you need to do is right click on the project with the items you want to break sync with and click on view synced items. Select the items you want to break sync with and click the "Break Sync" option in the top right corner. I hope this solves your issue.

    To break sync, right click on the project in the explorer tree and select View Synced Items. Select Items > Break Sync.

    I know I'm a bit late, but I'd like to add a caution here -- Because "sync" is tracked via a shared global ID, removing a sync will cause the item the sync is removed from to get a newly-generated global ID. This counts as an item change in Jama.

    ...which defaults to spawning change notification emails.

    Imagine the horror of a user who subscribes for notification to a 10,000 item set (a particularly large feature, in our case), receiving literally thousands of emails when the Jama admin bulk-cleans-up unintended synchronizations on the set.
