Jira Advanced Search for issues with/without Confluence links


I'm attempting to find a way to audit our closed Jira issues and see which ones do not have a link to our Confluence site (for documentation purposes).

One big issue seems to be that the built-in tracking only takes into account links that are to other Jira issues, not to Wiki pages. If I try to do a search using the linkedIssues(issueKey,linkType) method, but it does not recognize "Wiki Page" as a valid link type.

I would be satisfied with a view that allows me to see all issue links attached to a job, but the only column option is "Linked Issues" which does not show links to Confluence pages in the results.

I see that there is a plugin JQL Tricks but if it is true that I cannot filter to just see issue links of type "Wiki Page" then I don't see how that would help either.

Using JQL Tricks, you should be able to search using the remote link type. For wiki links, you can try:

issue in hasRemoteLinks("mentioned in")

See docs for more examples.

Hello Jobin, I installed the plugin and it is partially working. I will be contacting support to resolve the existing issues I am seeing, but feel this question is answered.

Hello Aaron, 

Just to complete the answer, for those who may not be familiar with JQL (as more and more people use JIRA now), there is the Impact for JIRA plugin (http://bit.ly/1tYPzxu) which allows to list issues with/without links to Confluence pages. See the middle screenshot there.
