Trying to answer your query on private edit option:
To have rule check in, check out and private edit you need to enabled "Allow Rule check out" option on the security tab of operator rule and "Use check-out" option in security tab of the "Ruleset" rule.
So you will see check in and check out option.
Once another user has check in the rule and you want to update the same rule you will see private edit option.
Ok, I got the Private Edit button and did the steps mentioned in the previous thread. I now get a Project dropdown after hitting connect, but the dropdown is empty. I have tried using my own Jira login name, admin, and firstname.lastname@example.org. I am using Pega Version 8.1.2. I have attached a screenshot and the tracer log.
I got projects in the dropdown by using another person's Jira login id. We had not created any versions in Jira, so I chose the Create new version option in the Version dropdown. But got Jira Integration error. Here is from the logs: 2019-02-05 16:54:43,809 [ http-nio-80-exec-4] [TABTHREAD0] [ ] [ FOIATest:01.01.01] (e.internal.ServiceMappingUtils) ERROR pega.gateway-imd.myorg.com|10.138.203.187|Rule-Connect-REST.Pega-Int-ProjMgmt-Jira.JiraProjectsCRUD email@example.com - Caught unexpected exception mapping inbound data: Exception occurred while mapping incoming response to .GetJiraWIParamResultsList
The Jira version was created in Jira. (See attached.) And the version shows up in the Version dropdown. (See attached.) But still getting Jira Integration Error. I have also attached the Tracer content that I turned on just before hitting the Begin Integration button.
I just went through the tracer logs you shared, Looks like your application has some ruleset related issues. Just try to save application rule independently and you will see some errors on application rule. Fix those errors first and then try to integrate application with JIRA.
Ok I got it to integrate, I think. Not sure what fixed it. Went into some of the rules, and re-saved them. Also changed Validation mode from Ruleset Validation to Application Validation on JiraIntegration Ruleset and saved. I am having another problem where I can't create a story or bug in Agile Workbench, but I will create a new post if I can't figure it out.
