Is JIRA - Confluence sync two way?

I've watch Confluence demos where it's possible to highlight text in Confluence to then create a task in JIRA.

What is the corresponding feature in JIRA? Can a user somehow update Confluence pages via JIRA?

Hi Lisa,

Please refer to Integrating JIRA and Confluence to see what you can do.



It isn't clear from the documentation what actual functionality you get from linking the two tools

Hi Lisa,

If you will integrate JIRA with Confluence you can get below abilities (depending on the JIRA/Confluence versions you use):

in JIRA:

  • viewing Confluence page as a Gadget on a Dashboard
  • Confluence Search gadget on a Dashboard
  • Activity Streams that will show updates from Confluence
  • special automatic "mentioned in" link in JIRA issue

in Confluence:

  • creating issue (or multiple issues) without leaving Confluence
  • showing status of the issues using JIRA Issues Macro (as a table or single issue)
  • showing reports from JIRA on a Confluence page

As for you question: "Can a user somehow update Confluence pages via JIRA?"

From my knowledge unfortunately this is not OOTB possible from JIRA. You will be always redirected to Confluence event that you are viewing a Confluence page on a Dashboard.

I hope that will help.

Best Regards,
