Yes I have tried to connect 2 JIRA instances by using application link before, and the steps should be pretty simpe. Basically in order to use JIRA Remote Links to link issues between 2 separate JIRA instance, you may perform the following steps:
- In one of the JIRA instance, go to Administration > Application Links > Add Application Link
- Specify the other JIRA instance Base URL as server URL, and configure the application link as needed
If the application link has been configured successfully, you may use Remote Links by accessing any of the issue, open the More Actions drop down > Link. You should be able to select the other JIRA server, and specify the issue key to add the remote link.
Normally I will use Trusted Application as authentication method for both incoming and outgoing authentication. But in order to use Trusted Application, you will have to ensure that users are existed in both instance under the same username.
More details on the authentication method, you may refer to the following documentation:
Over a month ago we have just released advanced JIRA Synchronizer at
It allows to synchronize particular Project/Issue Types with fields/comments/attachments/workflows between two (or more) JIRA instances.
Can you kindly further elaborate on our aimed requirement here? If you are looking for a way to synchronize 2 JIRA instance, this apparently may not be possible at the current moment. You may refer to the following documentation for more details on this:
But if you simply would like to link 2 JIRA instances, then it should be possible by using Remote Issue Links (available on JIRA 5 and above), in which you will have to configure application links first as per mentioned by Joe above. For more details on remote issue linking:
Hope this helps!
It is possible to link two issues, in the sense that you can view and access the link to another issue in the View Issue Screen. However, I don't think it's possible to have the comment written in both linked issues via Application Links.
For that, I believe that you would have to synchronize 2 JIRA Instances, like what Faisal mentioned.
I don't think there are any plugins that would enable you to do this.
If this is something you must have in your environment, you may wish to work with one of our Atlassian Experts : http://www.atlassian.com/resources/experts/?tab=find-an-expert
Please remember that this will not be supported byAtlassian. This means that if you experience a problem that can not be replicated in a non-clustered environment then that is where suport will most likely stop.
Nope, there are.
Using our plugin JJupin ( https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.keplerrominfo.jira.plugins.jjupin ), you can have a listener on the relevant events and add remotely the comment.
