How to application link Atlassian products via oauth Edited

Hello. I am very new to Atlassian products so I am looking for a little help here.

Details:

  • Jira and Confluence Servers
    • Jira v7.9.2
    • Confluence v6.9.0

Purpose:

  • Detailed instructions on how to set up an application link using oauth between Jira and Confluence - beginning to end

It seems that whenever I search how to exactly set up the application links I can complete nearly all of the tasks, but when it comes down to the key's I cannot find any completion details or instructions. I always find bits and peaces, but nothing definitive to complete the application link task.

Google searching tells me that when I get to the consumer and public/private key part I generate key's using openssl, but once I have them where do I place the keys? This is the part I don't know what to do and I need some elaborate instructions on.

Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

If anyone is curious about this:

  1. Import the Jira cert to the Confluence cacerts, and vise versa
  2. Browse to your local Jira server after both certs are imported: Cogwheel > applications > application links
  3. Create new link and go through the app link wizard

Hi @Andrew Gorman , 

 

is it a requirement to have SSL between your aplications links ? If it isn't, you can follow this documentation to setup a simple connector to bypass your proxy and make a direct link between your applications : https://confluence.atlassian.com/kb/how-to-bypass-a-reverse-proxy-or-ssl-in-application-links-719095724.html

This way you won't need a complex configuration for your links.

 

Let me know if this works,

So I add the following to the server.xml:

In Confluence to listen for Jira:

<Connector port="8080" connectionTimeout="20000" maxThreads="200" minSpareThreads="10" enableLookups="false" acceptCount="10" URIEncoding="UTF-8" relaxedPathChars="[]|" relaxedQueryChars="[]|{}^\`&quot;&lt;&gt;"/>

In Jira to listen for Confluence:

<Connector port="8090" connectionTimeout="20000" maxThreads="200" minSpareThreads="10" enableLookups="false" acceptCount="10" URIEncoding="UTF-8" relaxedPathChars="[]|" relaxedQueryChars="[]|{}^\`&quot;&lt;&gt;"/>

To add, All of the Atlassian internal products are SSL

Another issue is no outgoing authentication.
