I'm a total newbie with both. A major use for Confluence will be to comment on application requirements and design documents that will be created in a variety of formats (Office, Open Office, PDF, etc).
I understand how to do the commenting in Confluence.
What I'm looking for is what are the various ways people link from JIRA pages to Confluence, and which ways are used most commonly.
This page on Atlassian App Links may be a good place to start. Basic info with links elsewhere and terminology. This page from Atlassian documentation has a bit more practical detail. Finally, this blogpost, Display JIRA Issues in Confluence: More Power, More Control has some great examples with images. Hope it helps.
Thanks for the leads. I found what I was looking for here:
"Creating a link to another issue on the same JIRA site" - the link page has an option to link to Confluence, and do a wildcard search for the Confluence page.
