Confluence is a wiki platform for creating documentation and some companies even use it for their actual website. JIRA is an issue tracking system. You can embed macros in Confluence that can show details about your JIRA tickets. So, for instance you could have a knowledge base article and you could tie that article to JIRA tickets that apply.

I was going to say, "Better than just friends, but a little one sided." Your answer was better. smile

Thanks.  The reason I'm asking is that I have a Program of work which I want to break down into sub-projects.  I'm trying to figure out a way to do this in JIRA but I can only create multiple single projects that have no umbrella.  I was wondering if Confluence could be the umbrella/program level and JIRA act as sub-projects under that program?
