For each requirement within the imported ReqIF file, a corresponding Jira issue will be created and keep a reference (reqIF-id) to the original requirement. On subsequent imports, existing Jira issues will be updated with changed requirement content.
In the ReqIF4Jira administration, you can easily manage and edit different configuration files which define a set of mapping rules from ReqIF SpecObjects to Jira Issue fields. For each import, a matching configuration can be specified to support different ReqIF exchange scenarios (e.g. different customers or different source tools).
