confluence and jira : automatic mentions

with the new jira version you can create a link to a confluence page , this marks up the jira issue perfectly.

However I am being asked to make this linkage also visible on the confluence page .

Is there a way to automatically make this visible on the confluence page or is it a manual insertion of a jira issue required each time

To my knowledge it is manual if you do it that way. With Confluence v5.4 you can create JIRA tickets with Confluence and that then gets inserted into you page automatically if you do it that way.

Thanks Davin

Unfortunately we have a couple of mandatory fields that don't display in the create issue page in confluence (category & impact) so creation of an issue from Confluence (5.3.4) isn't possible .

Looks like it's a manual process then

5.4 is where they have beefed up the integration of Confluence and JIRA. Check out this page below.

I'll try in 5.5 as the bug creation screen can't support mandatory fields which aren't the basic fields. This is roadmapped for later this year I have been told

Thanks again davin
