What will happen if I delete JIRA projects that shares a akey with Confluence?

I want to delete the JIRA project that shares the key with Confluence, because I wanted to test some options and now I am decided to use JIRA and start over again with issue numbering. I want to keep the Confluence and I am afraid that deleteing JIRA project will erase the Confluence. Are my worries justified?

Hello @Michal Bugajny _buGi_ 

Welcome to the community.

What do you mean by sharing the same key ?

Jira and Confluence can be link together but there are two differents applications so if you delete a Jira project it will only impact Jira.

It may be useful to make a backup of Jira before deleting a project.

Hope this helps

Thanks, for the welcome and for your answer.


My case is - let:

  • JIRA project KEY be TEST1 and
  • Confluence KEY be TEST 1 too

they are "connected" from "Pages" section


This is the actual background of my worries :)

I just test it, no worries, your confluence space will still be able.
