  1. Save changes if needed or move to the “Issues” tab to add variable(s) to your template.

Add variables to the template

  1. Go to the “Issues“ tab of a template with variables created.

  2. Add a variable name to the issue summary, description or any other text field using the following syntax “{{MyVariable}}“.

☝🏼NOTE: It is important to use exactly the same variable name as you have on the “Variables” tab. Put the variable name between the double curly brackets.
Keep in mind, the variable name is case-sensitive, so {{MyVariable}} and {{myvariable}} are different variables.

  1. Don’t forget to save the template after all the changes 😉

  2. Hit the “Create issues“ button for a template with variables.

  3. You will get the a modal window where you can enter values to your variables.
