For Epics which get initiated in Aha and flow down to JIRA, we want to enable 2-way integration so that updates which happen in JIRA are realized in Aha. However, if a NEW Epic is initiated on the JIRA side, we may not want that to be visible in Aha. For example - we have 'base product' Epics which flow down from Aha to JIRA and we need integration on those. We have other 'customer specific' Epics (distinguished by base/custom radio button) which we don't want coming back into Aha. It's not always feasible to leverage a new JIRA issue type for this.
Thank you for your idea. With our enhanced Jira integration, any new issues created in Jira will appear in the Integration updates window as options to be imported. For new epics which should not be imported, you can select them and choose Ignore selected.
