Set default mapping value for empty memo type

ALM Synchronizer does not allow to do custom mapping for MEMO type fields, but we should map somehow Description in JIRA to Description in ALM.

The problem is that while Description in ALM is mandatory field, in JIRA it is optional and may be empty. I have tried to do “” -> “STUB DESCRIPTION”mapping, but synchronizer throws an error “The value mapping not allowed from field type: 'MEMO' into field type: 'MEMO'.”.

Is there a way to fix it somehow? We have lots of bugs in JIRA with empty description that should be mapped to ALM Defects with some stub default or empty.

Re: Set default mapping value for empty memo type

Have you checked with Support if there is a way to work around the problem in the sync setup? If that is not possible, you could remove the Required option on Description in ALM and make it mandatory using the workflow script instead.
