Overview

The HQL Validator avoids that an issue is created via the Jira 'Create' button if an HQL Action button is able to create issues in the selected Project/Issue Type

Recommendations

When applying the HQL Validator, on trying to create an issue, it checks on all mappings having as destination Project and Issue Type the selected ones and having the Quick Action Button/Post Function turned On in order to allow the issue creation to the users configured as Partnership Destination Credential on the associated Partnerships exclusively.

It implies that these users will be able to create an issue via the Jira 'Create' button too.

Consequently, It's recommended to apply as Partnership Destination Credential an HQL system user.

Prerequisites

The Allow issue creation/linking via partnership credentials must be turned  On.
