Two Activity Steam Displaying: Local and External

Hi Atlassian Community, 

My team and I recently noticed that when we're searching for the Activity Stream gadget in Jira, we have two different types of stream: local and external. 

The parameters for each one are slightly different. For the local, you can set a global filter based on a Jira project and for the external stream, you can set a global filter based on a Confluence space. 

Is anyone else experiencing this or seen this type of behavior? I haven't had much luck on documentation as I have only been able to find this page on the activity stream, which is not much: Is this expected?

Hi @Joseph Orellana,

If you have an Application Link for a different Atlassian application, in your example; Confluence, the gadgets from the application will be shown on Jira as well. In your screenshots, you can see the Confluence category - this will list down all the gadgets from the Confluence.

I hope that this helps.
