In addition to key and link field mappings, which are used to associate issue records in AccuWork and your ITS, IBM Rational ClearQuest, ALM, and JIRA, have several fields that are required in order to create issue records in their system. At a minimum, you must create field mappings for these required fields to ensure that issue records created in your ITS during synchronization are valid.
Tip: Create required field mappings as part of your basic mapping definition. This way, you only have to specify them once. See Base Mapping Definitions for more information on this topic.
