Add a 'linked confluence page' to the issue creation dialog in Jira?

I'm running Jira 5.0.x and Conflunce 4.1.x. We do have plans to upgrade in the near future.

Is it possible to add a text box with for a link the same way that more actions -> link -> confluence page to the issue creation dialog? We have a couple projects in Jira which have a large number of Confluence pages backing up additional documentation. It would be extremely convenient to paste the link in without having to open a second screen.

Hey Tim,

I would raise this as a new feature request. This might be something a lot of users are looking for.

Hi Tim,

In case you weren't already aware of it, you might consider utilizing Remote Issue Linking in JIRA. This would allow you to search for and create a link from the JIRA issue to a Confluence page (from the 'View Issue' screen). Any issue mentioned on a Confluence page using the JIRA Issues Macro will also create a link in JIRA to that Confluence page. Note that you'll first need to configure fully reciprocal AppLinks between your Connie and JIRA sites - see Configuring issue linking for external applications.

I'm aware of the remote issue linking function. We're already using that functionality in several locations on the Confluence side. Very handy but not what I"m after.

What I'm wanting is a way to use ad hoc links (based on the language on the page you linked to) to specific Confluence pages *within the issue creation dialog* in Jira. Any way to do so? I haven't seen a function like that on my 5.2 or 6.0 EAP testing.

Jason, I've used the Remote Issue Linking to link requirements in Confluence to JIRA issues and epics. Now I want to search and filter all issues related to a particular requirement in JIRA. Is there a way to search for links of Confluence?

@Bhushan - good idea. I've opened a request at https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-32835

I myself added an issue to show the contents of a Confluence page directly in the Jira description here: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-35316.
