      Team-managed boards can only be partially fetched, and can't be deployed. This is due to Atlassian API limitations.

Support for JSM for Jira Data Center will be added in the future.

Enabling add-ons in existing Jira environments

In existing Jira Salto environments, to fetch configuration of Jira Addons such as ScriptRunner or JSM, add the correct addon to the "fetch" section of your environment's Salto Configuration File.

Here's an example which enables both JSM and ScriptRunner:

jira {
fetch = {
enableScriptRunnerAddon = true
enableJSM = true

include = ...

Excluding elements

You can edit the Salto Configuration File to exclude specific elements that you do not wish to fetch and manage with Salto. You can choose which types to exclude, and also which instances of these types. To do this, use the exclude list under the fetch section of the Salto Configuration File.

For example, this file excludes all automations which have "test" in their automation name:

jira {
fetch = {
include = [
{
type = ".*"
},
]
exclude = [
{
type = "Automation"
criteria = {
name = ".*test.*"
}
}
]
}
}

You can also exclude specific Custom Fields according to their type. For example, this Salto configuration file excludes all multi picker fields from your fetches:

jira {
fetch = {
include = [
{
type = ".*"
},
]
exclude = [
{
type = "Field"
criteria = {
type = ".*multipicker"
}
}
]
}
}
