How can I have my private Confluence pages not listed in tickets?

When I add a link to a JIRA ticket in my confluence page, my page will be automatically linked to the ticket appearing in the "mentioned in" section. It's ok if the page is in public, but when it's in my private space, I don't want it to appear in the section because I don't want anyone else to know about the existence of the page.

Is there any setting or something to turn off the automatic linking for private pages? Thanks.

Hi @Takuma Yoshitani,

if the Confluence page is restricted so that only you can view it, the Jira issue won’t show the title of the page. It will just show that some page that mentioned this issue exists. Like this:

Or is your intention to not have this mention on the Jira issue at all?


Hi @roman,

Thanks for your answer.

Yes, I don't want this mention to appear on the JIRA issues at all.

As far as I know the only way to not have those mentions is to not connect Confluence and Jira with application links.


I think this is not the case in Jira Data Center. Or it depends from Jira/Confluence versions? In my Data Center case - if I just copy Jira ticket link into my private Confluence page, this will automatically show up as linked item in Jira Ticket with a title of my confluence page. 

Users will not be able to open my page (it will show dialog for sending access request to me) but still - my page's Title will be publicly shown in Jira ticket linked section


UPDATE: if you open confluence page, on the top there is notification which shows exactly where this confluence page is linked to. At least, you can go to each of these location and remove link manually.
