Application links Jira and Confluence

Hello everybody,

My architecture is in the same server

JIRA 6.3.1
Confluence 5.5.3
nginx proxy (ssl cert)

I need to link Confluence and JIRA (I want to use JIRA issues in my confluence documentation)

In JIRA administration page I added confluence url. That's redirected me on confluence administration page to add JIRA configuration. In confluence I have a Error with no explanation. But when I reload the page JIRA et Confluence are linked.

In a new confluence page when I try to add a JIRA issue nothing work !!!

Is anybody got the same issue with JIRA and confluence?

Thanks a lot

Hi Pierre, 

Do you mind to post the error that are getting ? It can help to see what's going wrong. Also, let's check your configuration of you application links on confluence. On Confluence - General configuration - Application Links click in Edit and be sure that your Outgoing and Incoming authentication are with OAuth Enable. If not, try to able it. 

Furthermore, bear in mind that the Application Name on Confluence and JIRA are the same. 

Also, please have a look in this link about configuring application links. And, here and here you will find information about application links + SSL which also can be useful. 


Hope it helps,

Hi Pierre 


I could see on your logs you are having some problems with OAuth authentication. So, please be sure that OAuth is configured properly.  You can have a look in this KB about it:


Also, could you try to follow this KB and let me know if it works ?
