How to link a Confluence page to a next-gen Kanban issue ?

Hi everyone,

We setted up Jira and Confluence in my company to take care of our project driving and documentation needs. 

I discovered a few days ago the next-gen Kanban board, and I really like the easy configuration and clear rule management it offers.

Yet, I'd like to link a paper we made with Confluence in an issue, but I can't find out how. It feels strange that you can add a google drive, a dropbox and a giphy attachment to an issue, but nothing from Confluence...

Is there a way, using the next-gen Kanban, to link a page from Confluence to an issue ?


Thanks for your time !

To be clear you don't link a Confluence page to Kanban which I'm guessing you know. I think you are asking where do I go to add a link in the new detailed issue view that appears in the Kanban board.

This is currently not available in the new view. I know Atlassian is aware and have been provided feedback (I was one of many that notified them). I would recommend you click the  feedback button and let them know you need this capability.

Indeed, a link is what I need.

Thanks for the answer, I'll hit that feedback button !

Wow, what a surprise. I am evaluating Jira and Confluence and also like the Next Gen. But now I see I have to stay away from that. I can't believe that Confluence integration would not be the first thing to address.

IMO I wouldn’t place that as the first thing to address among all the current limitations with NG. We have a ton of functionality with Classic projects today and I understand and am a fan of taking an MVP/agile approach to delivering new architectures. NG will continue to get better and Atlassian seems genuinely interested in feedback so we as users have a chance to contribute to the roadmap, which is nice. Of course this is just MO and I could be wrong. ;-)

We need this feature too. I hope it will be available after some time.

Also a chime in that our firm is looking for this as well.

Please vote and comment on JRACLOUD-69973.

We have the same issue.

I'd like to see this as well.

Really? No LINK possible???

you can paste the link in a comment.

Seriously, we need the Linking functionality from "old" Jira. It's insane to have to look through comments for tickets, confluence, and/or weblinks associated with the ticket/epic. 

How do you leave out such a basic and important piece of functionality by not allowing user to link to confluence pages or other resources required to complete or work on an issue
