How to create a confluence space after a JIRA Project is already created?

I'm using the .csv importer and am not given the option to create a confluence space during the import process. How do you create a space after your project is already created in JIRA and have them associated?

On the project's administration screen, scroll down to the "settings" section and click on "Configure Project Links". From there you can associate a Confluence space (you have to create the confluence space first)

This works as long as you have an Application Link configured between your JIRA and Confluence instances.

Hello Kevin,


There is no exact order you need to follow to create the link on a space that did not exist. Just make sure to create the space you want to associate it with and create the link. For step by step information please take the time to review this article:
