how do i share documents between confluence and jira

We use both JIRA and confluence, I want to be able to associate my project documents to JIRA project tasks - can this be done?

You could link the relevant Confluence pages to JIRA issues. I don't know how many docs you have associated with a single page though.

You might want to check these links:

Are you talking about documents, as in attachments to pages that you have in Confluence, or actual pages in Confluence?

If documents (PDFs, Word docs, etc.), you could store them in an external repository like Box, Dropbox, Google, Egnyte, Alfresco - and link them to JIRA via an integration by AppFusions. Then you can embed the JIRA list for your project in Confluence. Or you could also have same docs integrated with a Confluence integration. 

You are describing an interesting use case btwn both platforms. Can you please describe more?

Actual files - we want to try and eliminate our shared network drives - information gets lost.. we use JIRA as issue logging and sometimes the project docs are related to an issue or to an milestone in the implementation and we only want to maintain one document so being able share it is really important - does that make sense?

Hi @Lisa May,

You could use Share Attachments and Pages. With this add-on you can generate unique links for your attachments (or pages), like in Dropbox, so you don't need external services to share your documents between JIRA and Confluence.

Give it a try!

Disclaimer, I'm from Keinoby, the developers of this add-on.

I should have mentioned that we are using on demand so Share Attachments and Pages this won't work for us - any other suggestions?

Sorry for that @Lisa May! There's an open ticket in our public jira https://keinoby.atlassian.net/browse/SA-14 Could you add yourself as watcher/voter? Regards, Gorka

how do I get to that page - it asks me to login each time and it fails even though details are correct?

Hi, I don't see your user. Can you send me an email to gorka ( a t ) keinoby (d o t ) com? So I can create a new user for you. Regards, Gorka

Hey Everyone - thanks heaps for the suggestions, we are trying to move away from network drives as to store docs and we want to link word / excel / visio etc. between the confluence and JIRA - I'm going to give the Share Attachments and pages as it sounds just the ticket.... cheers smile
