Authoritative Source

Select the tool that will be the authoritative system of record: Mingle or SD Elements. This field is used in case of conflicting statuses between the Mingle issue and the SD Elements task. When you first synchronize a TODO task in SD Elements with an issue in Mingle, they will have the same status. If you then change the status in one tool, for example by closing the issue in Mingle, they will have conflicting statuses. This conflict is resolved when the projects are synchronized. There are three options:

  • ALM (default): The SD Elements task will be updated to match the status in Mingle. This is relevant to most workflows.

  • SD Elements: The Mingle status will be updated to match the SD Elements status.
