I have sucessfully set up Application Link between Jira and Confluence, now I'm testing to see what bonus features that gives me in Jira. I've attempted to link a task to a wiki page, but the GUI can't find any pages or even spaces for that matter...
I'm logged in as an account with full system admin access to both systems, I noticed that I needed this level of access to link this project with my wiki space, which is a little disappointing.
I can link to the page using the URL instead I'm just wondering if I lost any special features. What the benefits of linking spaces to projects and tasks to pages?
Hi, unfortunately this feature of linking to Confluence pages from JIRA 5.x is only available if you are using Confluence 4.x and above. We've tested this ourselves and bumped into a similar problem.
The benefit in this case is that you get to search for the pages you need whilst linking.
Here is the full blog post that explains all the features with linking between JIRA 5.x and Confluence 4.x http://blogs.atlassian.com/2012/02/link-jira-issues-to-confluence-pages-automatically/. See if this helps you decide.
