copy/past from confluence to jira without losing formatting

How do i copy formatted text from confluence into a JIRA case description and not lose the formatting from Confluence?

4 answers

Why copy and paste?  Why not just link the JIRA issue with the Confluence page or text?

Yes, that is possible and it is done as well, but people can be lazy and not switch between the two all the time to read details of how the story should be implemented. So I usually ensure that the story and the confluence pages are in-sync with each other by copying text between them. 
Does your team simply use Confluence as the source of truth? What do you usually have in the description field of the story?

we are having the same issue. We're starting to capture software requirements in confluence, but also have a separate instance for JIRA that our outside development team owns. We need to document requirements and metadata internally as well as in the JIRA instance our dev partner manages. And copying and pasting and re-formatting from wiki–>JIRA is a huge pain

And to note we also do have an internal JIRA instance and are struggling on how to best capture requests for new development work with associated metadata, like stakeholders, and the content of the requirements without having to duplicate information both on our internal instance as well as in the outside instance. Would love to know how others approach this.
