Before users can start creating Collaboration Links from Jira to the OSLC Remote Application , you need to define what OSLC Remote Application projects or artifact containers will be visible to the project you manage. This is done by defining associations between your project and those in the OSLC Remote Application . Once set, the association type will define on its own the available link types to create from the Jira project to the OSLC Remote Application project. It is worth to mention that when creating an association, the available association types will depend in turn on the nature (domain) of the OSLC Remote Application.
This app supports the following associations and corresponding link types per application domain:
|Application Domain||Association Type||Collaboration Link Type|
|Requirements Management||Provides - Implementation Requests||affects requirement|
|Provides - Requirements Change Requests||tracks requirement|
|Quality Management||Provides - Defects||affects test case result|
|blocks test execution|
|tested by test case|
|Provides - Quality Management Tasks||related test case|
|related test execution record|
|related test plan|
|related test script|
|Change Management||Provides - Related Change Requests||related change request|
|affected by defect|
|affects plan item|
|Architecture Management||Provides - Change Requests||elaborated by architecture element|
To create an association with an OSLC Remote Application project or artifact container:

Association Typecombo, and by looking at the above table, select the association type depending on the outgoing link types required.
Authorize Applicationpage which is a last confirmation to allow Jira accessing the OSLC Remote Application information on behalf the user you used to login . Click the
Allowbutton and then close the pop-up window when indicated if it is not closed automatically.
Add Associationdialog, a new
Artifact Containerfield will display the available projects for the logged-in user . Search and/or choose the project/artifact container to which you want to create the association and click the
Add Associationbutton . Searching is done by typing a text on the
Search container by nameinput field , this causes that all projects/containers that do not contain the typed text be hidden from the picker field.
To remove an association:
Project Associationspage, locate the association you want to remove and click on the trash icon at the
OKbutton in the opened
