Add a shortcut to a JIRA project in Confluence spaces sidebar



In Confluence I can create a "Confluence Space" specialised in "software-projects" (I'm sorry but because we're using Confluence in German I might not be able to translate all of Confluences terms properly).

While setting up the Space you can select the JIRA project which is related to this confluence space. This creates an overview of current issues in JIRA on the first page but also a shortcut in the sidebar:


While I can add generic web shortcuts via "Space settings" » "Sidebar configuration" » "Add space shortcuts" (in German "Verknüpfung hinzufügen"):

As you can see above there is already a shortcut named "JIRA: Playground" (linking to, because when creating the space I selected "software-project" and choose the related JIRA project "Playground".

But our team has not only one project in JIRA. There are more. So I would like to add a shortcut to the other projects as well.

Nothing I tried created a similar shortcut.

First I simply tried by adding the copied URL of the project on JIRA server.
Then I tried by adding a new application link via "Space settings" » "Integration" » "Application links". But this doesn't create any shortcuts in the sidebar.

So how can I in Atlassian Confluence 6.15.7 make a shortcut to JIRA projects like the one you can see in the pictures above?

Thank you very much for your help,

Sorry, but are you kidding me? Did you read my questions description at all?
