Sample Configuration File

<!-- **********************************************************************
FILE:    Jira-config-RallyJiraCommentLinker.pxml

PURPOSE: Used to copy Discussions or Comments between Rally and JIRA.

         WARNING: There is a known limitation with this feature. Once the
         Rally Discussions have been sync'ed with JIRA Comments, they should
         never be modified in JIRA, otherwise it will cause a recursive copy,
         back and forth between the two systems, with the Discussions/Comments
         growing with each iteration. This occurs because the connector compares
         the two sets of Discussions/Comments, and if they are not identical,
         it assumes they need to be re-synced; however, Rally Discussions
         are read-only (once they have been created), so an edited Comment
         in JIRA is copied to Rally as a new Discussion, and at that point the
         Discussions/Comments between the two system will be out of sync again,
         and this looping will continue indefinitely.

USAGE:   Replace all the "Your-..." strings below with values appropriate
         for your environment.
