JIRA tasks inside Confluence Workbox? can't setup application link!

hi there

following this blog post http://blogs.atlassian.com/2012/11/view-jira-notifications-in-confluence-workbox/ , i'm trying to make things work.

* i've created an ondemand jira + confluence configuration, just a few days ago. fine.

* an application link is present by default (and i can't edit it). seems i don't need to setup anything in order to have jira issues notified inside my confluence workbox, cool

* errrk, i create a task and assigned it to another user "mate", but the "mate" user can't see it in his confluence workbox

what can i do ?

have i to add another application link ?

i don't have any "In-App notification Screen" in confluence administration page!

Since you are using Atlassian OnDeamnd you will not be able to see the In-App notification screen in the admin console, as OnDeamnd users do not have System Administrator priviledges.

Assigned JIRA issues will not show up in your Confluence WorkBox. You will only get notifications for shared issues, shared filters, @mentions in issues and comments, and comments on issues you are watching.

it was actually unclear to me that i can't receive notifications for newly assigned jira tasks (opposite to confluence ones which act like that)

thanks for your precious answer

Hallo k0nan

Thanks for giving this feedback! The Confluence OnDemand administration guide may help. I've just added it to the OnDemand documentation, in response to your question:

There's actually nothing you need to configure in OnDemand. Notifications from JIRA will start appearing in your Confluence WorkBox automatically.

is there a way to show JIRA notifications... inside like it does in confluence
