Customization options

Here are all the available options for Jira and GitLab:

Filter issues synced

Unito will sync all tasks and issues by default but you can customize your workflow by syncing just some of them (complete guide).

Filter by issue type

You can filter which type of issues you want to be synced to Jira (complete guide).

One-way sync

You can choose to sync only from GitLab to Jira or Jira to GitLab. Here is how it works.

Map your Jira and GitLab users

Here is a complete article on how to sync teammates.

Sync tasks/issues already closed

Unito will automatically sync opened tasks or issues automatically. But here is how to also sync closed tasks and issues prior to the sync creation.

Prefix task title with Jira/Gitlab issue number

Unito doesn't sync the issue number by default but you can enable that (for either Jira or GitLab) in your sync settings. Here is how to do it.

Default type for new Jira issues

You can choose which type of issue should be created by default in Jira when a new issue is created in GitLab.
