Global configuration can be accessed via JIRA administration > Add-ons > InstaPrinta > Configuration. The interface contains both the configuration for InstaPrinta and a section to manage all InstaPrinta templates.
Settings can be changed for every project. Project configuration can be found in the admin area of a project under "InstaPrinta". All fields will initially be grey. The settings can be changed via activating the check box for project configuration for this project. If the checkmark is not selected, it will default to global InstaPrinta configuration. Most settings of global configuration can be edited for every individual project.
The elements in the issue view, marked with colored circles, are partially part of the existing templates or can be used to create new templates. Apache FOP is used to transform templates in XSL-FO format (in a special XSL style sheet, W3C-Standard) for direct printing or .pdf creation.
Placeholder for JIRA entries for use in templates
You can use the following place holders in the templates for the items marked in the issue view above. To test all fields, the template InstaPrinta - Administrator Guide 2.0 can be used.
Existing sample templates
InstaPrinta comes with a series of sample templates. They are available automatically at first installation and can be activated for use. If the templates have been deleted, they may also be installed again via the template management in the global configuration interface. If there are templates with the same name, they will never be overwritten. Templates with the same names will need to be deleted manually in template management before a new installation.
These templates contain some elements form the issue view (above) and can be identified by the colored circles and numbers.
Managing templates in the JIRA admin area
Global configuration includes an area to manage (upload, delete, download) InstaPrinta templates. The use is explained in the section global configuration.
