Preview Gitlab files on Confluence pages and Jira tickets

Have you tried out Smart Links yet? Smart Links offer you different ways to display a link above and beyond a traditional hyperlink or URL. Try Smart Links for your favorite work tools, like Dropbox, Asana, Google Drive, and more. They are available on both Confluence and Jira.

Preview your Gitlab files directly on pages with Smart Links

To add a Gitlab Smart Link, simply paste the URL link on a Confluence page or type “/link” to insert. Once pasted, you can view the file as a small “inline” link which quickly lets you know the file’s title and format – in this case a Gitlab file.

You can change toggle your view to a more impactful “card” preview where you can see more information about that file like the status, language, and more.

View your latest repository side-by-side to your technical documentation, all on one page!

More Smart Links are coming so stay tuned!
