Interpretation by EA Connector for Redmine

  • A blank line is ignored
  • A line starting with # is ignored
  • String after ,# in the middle of a line is ignored
  • A line without delimiters is igonored
  • Process in order from the first line
  • Process only lines with the delimiter <- / <-> / <+ / <+> when Attributes import to new element
  • Process only lines with the delimiter <- / <-> / <= / <=> when Attributes import to existing element
  • Process only lines with the delimiter -> / <-> / +> / <+> when Attributes export to new ticket
  • Process only lines with the delimiter -> / <-> / => / <=> when Attributes export to existing ticket
  • When Attribute Name of the setting side is the same, process it as an addition of the string
  • When Extension String exists, the process depends on the Attribute Name
    • Extension String is necessary for TaggedValue / TaggedValueMemo and the name of tagged value is set to Extension String
    • When a regular expression enclosed by "" is used at the acquisition side, the regular expression is applied to the string of Attribute Name value. If they match, the first part of the string enclosed by ( ) is set as the value. If not, the entire string of the Attribute Name value is set as the value
