Cannot create a JIRA issue in confluence

I have not been able to configure Confluence so our community can create JIRA issues there. Is this an open Atlassian issue?

The easiest way would be to use REST API. You can use HTML macro in Confluence to embed the Javascript and use JQuery (can reference it in Javascript, in Confluence as AJS.$) to make a AJAX call to create an issue in JIRA.

Of course the question about authentication remains open - as I am not aware what configuration you have for your JIRA/Confluence (kerberos, basic auth, etc)

It's a built-in Confluence feature. Only thing you need to make sure is you have the relevant JIRA and Confluence versions: https://www.atlassian.com/software/confluence/whats-new/jira-integration

Thanks for your responses. In our case, we needed to do the following:

The most important step was importing the *.int.unavco.org jira key into confluence's java cacerts file:

-scp root@jira.int.unavco.org:/etc/httpd/conf/ssl/int_unavco_org.crt /var/tmp/
-keytool -import -alias jiraCert -file /var/tmp/int_unavco_org.crt -keystore /opt/atlassian/confluence/jre/lib/security/cacerts (when prompted for a password here use whatever password you have).  However, if you're using keytool -list and are prompted for a password, you can leave it blank)
 
-restart confluence
-in confluence's "Application Links" click "Create new link" and follow the prompts.  This will also log into jira and create a reverse application link from jira to confluence
-now in confluence edit this application link, and in Incoming Authentication under the Trusted Applications tab hit Disable.  Do the same in jira.
ntp was not running on our instance of confluence, and thus its time was about 8 minutes behind jira.  I had to enable ntp, and update the time, before the application link would work.
