I have a Confluence page that has what we call "requirement ID" numbers in it, which are the same format as Jira issue keys, e.g. REQ-10. Confluence thinks that these are Jira issue IDs, and so it creates a Jira "browse" hyperlink for them, but I don't want that to happen.
In my case, the "REQ" actually happens to also be the name of a Jira project, as is often the case in our company...maybe that's why Confluence is trying to create this link. Regardless, I don't want Confluence to create the link.
How can I avoid Confluence's automatically creating this link? I just want the bare text, "REQ-10", in the page, not a link to a (nonexistent/incorrect) Jira issue.
I'm not sure if it being in a table would make a difference.
The only other thing I can think of is to disable the application link to Jira from Confluence - although that might have an impact on other integrations you have. If you do unhook them then it should stop any automatic links entirely.
