Installing wiki for JIRA


I'm currently trying to install a wiki on our JIRA instance but I don't succeed sad.

I see "wiki-editor" exists in my "installed" pluggin but I don't have the tab next to the agile one in the top ribbon.

Yesterday I've downloaded a .jar file but I don't see directory needed.

We work on Version 6.05.

wiki-editor - 1.2-D20150312T074656
Module externe deAtlassian

 Can you please help me configuring this wiki?




PS : I'm not fully sure that wiki editor is enough to use a "wiki".

Hi Romain, what do you mean by wiki? To have Confluence installed? Please be aware that you are not allowed to install add-on on Cloud besides of those available on Atlassian Marketplace.

Just a guess: Is that the wiki-renderer module to format text fields by typing wiki syntax?

The Confluence-like toolbar (as you see below for new answers - is not available in JIRA Cloud! Even that does not give you a wiki - it is only a formatting help.



Hello and grat thanks for your answers.


In fact, I just want to be able to sort every document existing in the JIRA issues. Or even manage documentation for a whole TMA project.


Is that something that confluence allows?



Hi Romain,

Depending on the functionality you need, I have a simple wiki plugin in the marketplace that provides a wiki section for each project, hosted right inside your JIRA instance.

Do note however that this plugin is much simpler in functionality than Confluence. So if your documentation needs are more complex, Confluence is probably the way to go. Tons of features, awesome integration with JIRA, ..etc.
