Result

Changes to the data source are saved.

Deactivating a data source

If you deactivate a data source that is already added to issues, there are following consequences:

  • Create issue screen: Subfields connected to the data source won’t retrieve any information (but can still be filled out manually).
  • Edit issue screen, Issue view and Transition screens: Subfields that already contain information from the data source will remain unchanged (but won’t synchronize with the data source anymore).
  • Options in Select Lists that have already been retrieved from a data source will remain selectable on the screens where the Bundled Field is added (but won’t synchronize with the data source anymore).
