I am new to both Jira and Confluence. I know that they can be used together, but if one was only using one of them, which would be the better to document a scrum please, in your opinion; and why?
Honestly the two products are very different.
In short, use Jira. Of course I'm reading a bit into your question though, as saying 'document a scrum' could be taken different ways.
Hope that helps.
Welcome to the community first of all. In my option, you should start with Jira Software and conduct/setup the Scrum process first. This will give you the actual hands-on experience with running/planning a scrum. You can then supplement the scrum with Confluence reference on documenting the best practices/concepts for your scrum team.
Use Confluence for process documentation and Jira Software for the actual implementation. You can include your actual results from Jira Software (i.e. issue listing/sprint velocity reports) to represent actual facts to validate/support your process definitions for your company.
Hope this helps.

From the little I know, it seems to me that one would do well to create the issue in Jira but document the actual scrum in Confluence, and the step-by-step process will be on record in Confluence but only the results of the scrum transferred to Jira. Does that sound right to you please?
