Associate JIRA Project with Confluence space


i have installed Jira and Confluence both on the same system and it runs perfectly. I can synchronize the Jira users and can access on JIRA Issues from Confluence. How can i associate a Confluence space with a Jira Project?

I have tried the following but in my JIRA project setting i can't find the required point (There is only csv modules):

Can somebody help me with this?

Thanks a lot!

This can be done from the Confluence side of things pretty easily, assuming you've established an application link between Confluence & Jira already:

  • Go to Space Admin
  • Click on the option "Application Links"
  • Click on the option "Add link" - you should see your Jira instance listed.
  • Click on the option for the Jira instance.
  • You'll now be prompted to provide the Jira project key for the project you want to associate with the current wiki space.

Hope that helps,


Thank you! =)

I'm afraind that's not helping me. I don't see any "Space Admin" anywhere

Hi. I am able to do this, but I do not understand the advantage of linking? What benefits does linking offer? 

Hi - on the cloud version in the confluence space go to:

  • Space tools > Integrations > application links

Has Space Tools moved since this discussion? I'm the administrator of my account but I've searched everywhere and there is no Space Tools option.

In the cloud version: If you are the Space administrator : 

in the side bar (at the bottom) you find "Space Tools"
click on the "down arrow" to show options
select "Integrations"
select tab "Application links"

If you are not the space administrator, you may be able to find him/her via the same "space tools" under "overview".  But I don't know if you can see this if you're not admin yourself...

Is it possible to link a certain project from JIRA to one Confluence and to link another JIRA project to another Confluence (e.g. on another server)?
