How to disable "mentioned in" function in JIRA?

JIRA creates an issue link to a page automatically (in Issue Link section as mentioned in, whenever a JIRA issue is mentioned in a Confluence page.

Is it possible to discard that function for a single project?

JIRA version 6.0.8, Confluence 5.1.5

Hi Sylwia,

"mentioned in" feature is realted to integration between JIRA and Confluence. There is a way do disable this by removing the Application Link, but this will also remove all other feature and probably you do not want to do it. Unfortunately this cannot be disabled for one single project.

Maybe you can try to view the issue on Confluence page in a table view instead of one single issue and this will not create a link.

Best Regards,


Thanks for your response. If there is no possiblility of disabling it on particular project, then I will use your suggestion.
