Can you retain Confluence linking with Jira Automation Rules



We utilize a recurring automation rule for on-going maintenance for our clients website. We also have a singular document that we track any sort of patches or workarounds on that we link to this task so everyone knows what to look for.

Is it possible for those Confluence pages links to be retained when using an automation rule? So far I only see the ability to do this with issue links when building the automation and had assumed these links would be retained since they generally are when manually cloning an issue.

Hi @Daniels 

This is a great use case to leverage Jira Cloud REST API inside your Automation.

I ran a quick lab and managed to get the remote link from a Jira issue and create a remote link to the issue cloned from the original one. Therefore, you can reuse this solution to your scenario:



A few tricks:

Get Remote Link

  • Webhook URL:
  • HTTP Method: GET
  • Headers: Content-Type : application/json
  • Authentication: See How to authenticate to Jira REST API 
  • Check the "Wait for response" option so that you can use info from the body with smart value webhookResponse.body to create your post request 
  • Webhook body: EMPTY


Post Remote Link
