Is there any provision in JIRA for documentation

Hello Commnuity Member,

Is there any provision in JIRA , where I can maintain my entire project related documentation. I know we have provision in Confluence, however wanted to know if we have something in JIRA.

No, JIRA is an issue tracker, not a documentation system.  That's why Atlassian wrote Confluence!

JIRA was not really designed for this, but Confluence was.

If you need to stay on JIRA, you could:

  1. The SimpleWiki add-on
  2. Or model each wiki page as a separate issue (you formatting, linking, etc. capabilities will be somewhat limited or counter-intuitive, but this could work in some simpler situations)

Ok. Thanks a lot Aron.




Please accept my answer if that was helpful, instead of posting an answer to your own question.
