Can't link Confluence page in JIRA Issue

When trying to link a Confluence page to a JIRA Issue, it doesn't work. You can't search for a page with the 'Find a Confluence page' dialogue and when you insert a link to a Confluence page it says "No Confluence page found with the given URL.". However, I can mention JIRA Issues in Confluence without problems. It seems like the application link only works in one way.

Maybe relevant from the Logfile:

For someone who might be experiencing the same issue:

It was solved by adding the port to the application URL.

Hi Vanessa

I'm having this same issue at the moment.  My use case is that I want to be able to link to a Page directly from an Issue on a Kanban Board.  Is this possible?



Wanted to update you guys. At the moment we are not working with an active directory so the usernames did differ sometimes. The usernames on Jira AND Confluence needs to be identical to properly work!

The answer is in the log - you don't have the right credentials for the page you're trying to link to.

Check the application link is valid and working, and that your account is the same in JIRA and Confluence.

Thanks for your suggestion.

The application link is valid and working. It says 'Connected' on both sides and both applications run on the same server.

My account is also the same and I am administrator in both applications.

Hmm.  The error message says it's not able to read the page in Confluence from JIRA because there's a credentials problem.  If it's not that you don't have access, we're a bit stuck.

Could you try making the space temporarily accessible to "anonymous users" and try again?  If it succeeds, we know it's your credentials and/or the user mapping.  If it fails, we should be looking at the link.

Very good idea! It worked with anonymous access!

But how do we solve it now? Confluence and JIRA both sync with our Active Directory.

Ok, that's good, it means it's all working except that Confluence is not getting who you are from JIRA correctly.

I would now need to

1.  Check your account has access to log into Confluence (As an admin you should have it automatically, irrespective of other settings), and also access to see the page (this is not granted by being an admin - you need to check the space permissions give you the right to see the page).

2. try re-building the application links between JIRA and Confluence to confirm that they are working.

1. Yes, I can log into Confluence and see the page. The screenshots above were taken while I was logged into my account.

2. Done. Both say status "Connected" again, but the Confluence page still fails to load in the JIRA issue.

Kinda old, but did you found a solution on this matter? I'm facing the same problem atm.


Thank you.
