Confluence Page Link remains on JIRA issue after JIRA issue macro is removed from Confluence Page

Is anyone else experiencing this issue?

Steps to reproduce:

  • Add a JIRA issue to a Confluence page using the JIRA issues macro
  • The Confluence Page link shows on the JIRA issue
  • Remove the JIRA issue from the Confluence page
  • The link to the Confluence Page is still displayed on the JIRA issue

Refreshing the Web page or using a different browser does not remove the link.

I just tried it with standalone Jira 6.2 and had the same issue. I can manually remove the link from the Jira side afterwards, but I agree with you: if you remove a Jira macro from a wiki page it should remove the associated link. You may want to raise a bug/improvement with Atlassian support.

Thanks, John. I just found a similar Atlassian Answers question and a JRA request...https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/124553/links-between-jira-and-confluence-are-not-removed

Many thanks fo this hint! It seems to be solved with Confluence 6.0.0
