Missing "knowledge base" menu entry in settings for ServiceDesk 2.5.9

I'm using:

  • JIRA  6.4.11
  • Confluence 5.7,
  • Service Desk addon to JIRA 2.5.9

Acording to the documentation when entering the service desk project administration, there should be "knowledge base" menu entry, but it's not present on my system:jira_kb.png


In Confluence "Confluence Administration" -> "Application Links" I have connection to JIRA configured.


What can I do to configure knowledge base?

This actually exists within the "Settings" menu of the Service Desk view on the version you are working with.

Your KB "space" in confluence also needs to have anonymous view access. Hope this helps!

I'm really sorry, but tried multiple times and I cannot reach the page that you posted. I tried "administration->addons->JIRA service desk->configuration" and "administration->projects->Customer Support for XXX" and there was no pages similar to shown above. What am I missing?

If you go to the project header and then admin, you don't get anything like the "customer requests" on the left of that screen?

If you don't then the project is not a "service desk" project type and you'll need to change that.

No, there is nothing like "customer request" - like on provided screenshot. It's Category is "service desk", how can I check project type?


Category is just a way of grouping projects.  To check if it's a SD project, go to the list of projects in the Admin section.

You say you've got an application link from Confluence to JIRA - has this been configured on both ends?  I mean if you look in JIRA's application links, is Confluence listed there and working ok?

Yes, I can see the Confluence in JIRA's application links. How can I check if it's working properly?
