How can I default Confluence, not JIRA, as the start application when a user logs in?

We have confluence & JIRA.

How can I set a user to go to a particular confluence page when they log in?

Currently when a user logs in JIRA is the initial application.

I have set the start page when they use the Application Manager to swop to confluence.

I just want them to start in confluence, at a specific start page.

Hi Ian,

I believe that setting the site home page will change this behavior. can you give a shoot?

Hello Ian,

I believe you'd need to access the url with the Confluence context path in this case, instead of accessing the URL without it and then selecting Confluence on the Application Manager. For example, if your URL is "", you'd need to access "".


I hope it helps!


If I log in after starting a browser afresh, I log straight into the desired confluence page.

If I then log out and take the option to log back in I am taken to the JIRA dashboard.

This sequence is repeatable!

Hi Ian,

i am looking for the same solution and inspired by Eduardo trying next to reconfigure the base URLs for JIRA and Confluence. not tried yet.
