JIRA, on it's own, is an Issue Tracking software. Though you can attach "documents" and/or "files" to issues related to a single project, it's not optimized to be a "document management" like what you briefly describe. 

Sounds like Confluence can do what you need, but I'm not entirely sure what is your requirement or process. Take a look at that. It has some cool features on how it handles documents (like versioning, tracking etc...)

Thank you for the information.

Can Confluence and JIRA be combined or linked together.


Yes they can be combined. Read the documentation here ( You will be able to display JIRA issues in the confluence pages for reporting and display JIRA Gadgets too. Confluence Activity Stream can be added in a JIRA Dashboard. Try it out :)
