How to display the Confluence pages in my Jira Software Project-Pages overview?

Hi Community,

my Project-Pages Overview are empty:



There is a Confluence area called "League Manager" with two pages. I would like those to be displayed on the above view.

I was able two connect this area with this view:


Nothing works. I've already spent hours on that. My current workaround looks like this:

  1. click on "create page" (leads to Confluence)
  2. cancel creation 
  3. enter desired pages on Confluence

This seems stupid to me. I think there must be ways to directly access my Confluence area pages directly. Does anyone know how to get that to work?

Kind regards,

Hello Pandau,

Welcome to Atlassian Community!

When linking a Confluence space to a project, the pages should be listed and accessible for the users (depending on the permission in Confluence). 

As per your screenshots, I understand that after linking to a space, the pages are not visible and it only shows after you click to create a new page, is that correct?

I tested here on my free site on a brand new project and space, but I wasn't able to replicate it.

Is it happening on other projects?

If you connect to another space, does the issue happen?


Hi Angelica, 

thank you for your reply. Let me play around a little bit more with a new project. I think this behaviour is not trivial to replicate. 

I will post an answer when I figured it out.

Hi Angelica,

I wasn't able to recreate this issue nor was I able to configure the existing space to make it work.

But creating a new space and just copying all pages to the new space worked. The pages of my new space are displayed properly and as expected.

Thank you for providing your help!

Thank you! I had the same issue and it worked for me too!

I have the same issue but creating a new space did not solve the problem for me. I tried linking the space and the jira project multiple times in both confluence and jira, but jira still shows "There’s nothing here but potential" instead of the confluence pages. I also tried setting the page permissions to "all", but this also did not help.


I found the solution: I needed to additionally click on the three dots in the top right and select "connect to a different space" and connect the space again. Pages now show up in Jira. 

I am glad that worked for you. This simple solution didn't work for me. I was able to set your mentioned connection via the three dots. But my pages were still empty.

So I had to go with creating a totally new space on Confluence and copying all the content to that new space. The new space was able to be linked to my Jira pages properly.

Thank you for your tip! Creating a new space and copying pages there worked for me as well.

Dear all, creating new space and copying the pages there is just a workaround. The reason of this is a lack of homepage. There must be one homepage and all other pages must be as its children in the pages structure, then they are shown properly in the Jira projects and in confluence sidebar as well.

So to fix this:

1. Create empty page, e.g. "Project home page"

2. Go to Space settings -> Edit space details and set the homepage to just created

3. Go to Space settings -> Content tools -> Reorder pages and put all other pages into just created homepage.

And it works!
