Backbone has multiple features that make synchronizing issues flexible and powerful.

Control what's synchronized, and in what direction

Backbone supports unidirectional and bidirectional synchronization of Jira issues. You stay in control which information will be shared.

If you want to limit which issues are being synchronized, you can define a JQL filter to select a subset of issues.

In addition to filtering on the issue level, you can also decide which fields should be synchronized, so you can keep some fields internal.

Backbone supports the synchronization of many Jira features like:
