Remote Issues Links between Confluence & Jira 5.0

I am trying to get linking to work between Confluence and Jira.

We just upgraded to Jira 5.0 in order to pick up the remote issue linking feature described here:

However when I try to add a link in the ways described in the video I am not having any success.

First problem is the copy/paste example shown in the video does not work for me. When I copy and paste a Jira URL into confluence, it is not converting it into a Jira Issue Macro, but rather just keeps it as the link text.

Next, when I try to insert the Jira URL via the Macro: Insert Macro -> Jira Issues I am seeing an error.

(see attached image)

I'm hoping someone can help me with this or tell me if this is a known issue.

OK...I see what the problem was. The URL in setting up the remote issue links was incorrect. I was originally referencing an unsecure URL (http://) Seems now the URL is secure (https://)

Perhaps this was a part of the 5.0.1 upgrade that our team performed. But just thought I post it here for anyone else who might come across this problem.
