I tested the Activity Stream gadget on a Confluence page and all the issue links went straight to JIRA. I tested with JIRA 7.3.6 and Confluence 6.3.1. 

I found a bug report for the behavior which has not been reported fixed: Links from JIRA Use Relative URLs for Activity Stream. Yet I could not reproduce it. A customer posted a workaround on the bug report.

Please let me know in what versions of Confluence and JIRA you are seeing the bad links when you use the gadget.

Confluence - 6.0.6
Jira - 6.3.15

Actually this is not bad link, link is right, but relative.
If I change base URL Confluence to the base URL of Jira - link will be valid

I looked into the bug
and this is exactly what we have
will try a workaround and let you know

I had a 6.3.x JIRA test instance and when I tested with that linked to my Confluence 6 instance I got the relative URLs as you report. Somehow Links from JIRA Use Relative URLs for Activity  was resolved in a later version of JIRA.

I hope you can upgrade soon because 6.x has passed End of Life status.

I will comment on the bug to let people know it is not impacting JIRA 7.3.6.

Thank for you help !
Workaround is works fine.
Yes, we have plans to upgrade, but it will take time since we need to rewrite big pack of groovy scripts & a pack of the custom plugins due to the API changes.
